Join us for an in depth look at “Scotland's place in Europe” in Glasgow.
The EU referendum result was a vote for leave, but a breakdown of the vote shows that in Scotland a clear majority of voters supported remain. At this session the Scottish Affairs Select Committee will consider how the UK's exit from the EU will affect key Scottish sectors, and what future relationship with the EU would be best for Scotland. The Committee will also examine the consequences and opportunities for developing Scottish trade in Europe and beyond.
