SNP silent as Scottish Government defends UK minister's rights to keep Northern Ireland protocol legal advice secret

The SNP has failed to answer whether the party believes the UK Government should publish the legal advice it has received around the plans to unilaterally scrap the Northern Ireland Protocol.

This is despite the party’s previous stance around the legal advice connected to Brexit on which, led by Westminster party leader Ian Blackford, the SNP voted in favour of publication.

The SNP did not answer the question on whether its MPs wished to read or scrutinise the advice, which the Attorney General, Suella Braverman, has reportedly received that provides a legal justification for the UK Government’s plans to scrap the protocol.
