PM meeting with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon: 14 March 2018

Prime Minister Theresa May held talks with Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in Downing Street.


A Downing Street spokesperson said:

This afternoon, the Prime Minister met with the First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon ahead of the latest Joint Ministerial Committee between the UK government and devolved administrations.

The Prime Minister updated the First Minister on the Brexit negotiations and made clear her commitment to a deal that works for the whole of the UK and protects the security and prosperity of all our communities.

On devolution, they discussed the tabled amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill that would ensure the vast majority of devolved powers will transfer directly to Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast and committed to continuing to work together to find an agreement.

The Prime Minister also provided an update on the nerve agent attack in Salisbury and thanked the First Minister for her strong support of the actions the UK Government is taking against Russia in response.
