Scottish Government Debate: Scotland and EU-UK Negotiations on EU Exit
S5M-08352 Michael Russell: Scotland and EU-UK Negotiations on EU Exit—That the
Parliament agrees that a “no deal” outcome from the negotiations with the EU must be ruled out by
the UK Government; further agrees that such an outcome would be an economic and social
disaster for Scotland; recognises the worry that the lack of clarity over citizens’ rights is causing to
many people living, working and studying in Scotland; urges the UK Government to immediately
guarantee the rights of fellow EU citizens in the UK without imposing charges on them; welcomes
the reconvening of the Joint Ministerial Committee (EU Negotiations) on 16 October 2017
following an eight-month hiatus, and agrees that the EU Withdrawal Bill must be amended to
respect the devolution settlement before it can proceed any further.
