I wished her well for the negotiations that will start when she triggers Article 50 on Wednesday. I indicated the Scottish Government's desire to play a constructive part in that, it's in all or our interest that she gets a good deal. I had been under the impression, based on weekend media reports, that she was coming to offer something in the way of more powers.
It turned out that wasn't the case. She said she thought the terms of the future relationship, the detail of that would be clear before exit in March 2019. And so my view is that the time for an informed choice for the people of Scotland. Look, I continue to be frustrated by a process that appears not to be listening.
Not just to Scotland but to any of the devolved administrations, and I made that point to her. You know, I reminded her again. That, you know, we had your key membership of the single market rolled out with no discussion, and that has been the experience of these negotiations.
I want the UK to get a good deal. But when that deal emerges, I think people in Scotland should have an informed choice about whether that's the path they want to take, or whether they want to take the path of becoming an independent country.
