Responding to the news the UK Government has recognised delayed Brexit import checks will increase inflation, the SNP’s Business spokesperson and Gordon MP, Richard Thomson said:
“This Conservative UK Government should be finding ways to support households through this tough cost of living crisis, instead they seem determined to make it as difficult as possible for ordinary people to cope.
“Brexit has been an unmitigated disaster for households and business right across Scotland - with every day that passes it gets much worse.
“And yet the Conservatives, and pro-Brexit Labour, are happy to ignore the reality of the mess their Brexit has caused, at the expense of ordinary people.
“With both the Conservatives and Labour working hand in glove to keep Scotland out of the EU and impose massive disadvantage and uncertainty on our businesses and people, it’s clear we need an alternative.
“Only the SNP are offering voters a route to re-join the European Union through independence for Scotland."
