Carlaw also said that Ms. Sturgeon and the SNP wanted Brexit to fail so they could get support for another Scottish independence referendum.

Mr. Carlaw called for the Scottish government needed to find solutions for whole UK to succeed outside the European Union

“I am determined that we will not support and there will not be.

The Scottish people voted to stay in the UK with a 55% majority.
