No answers for farmers as ministers clash over Brexit

Scottish Government ministers have accused Defra Secretary Andrea Leadsom of “deflection and evasion” over Brexit.

It follows a meeting between Mrs Leadsom and representatives from the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The purpose of the summit on Thursday (23 February) was to obtain assurances that agriculture would continue to be a devolved matter.

But Scottish ministers claimed it was an “unproductive” meeting.
