The funding Inverclyde receives from the European Union (EU), over £6m since 2008, is of vital importance and the decision to leave the EU could have a lasting effect on our area. Alongside this, not having access to both the single market and customs union will be bad for business, tourism and trade.
Here in Inverclyde, the people sent a clear message that they’d rather remain in the EU, however we are being pulled out by a Tory Government who are still fighting, sixteen months after the vote, on what terms we leave.
The damage of a Tory hard Brexit isn’t just something to worry about in the future – it is something that is causing damage to our economy in the here and now.
The SNP group at Westminster will continue to stand up for Scotland and ensure our voice is heard.
