I congratulate the Prime Minister on bringing the country together and uniting Scotland behind our First Minister. The Prime Minister was asked by my right hon. Friend Angus Robertson about what was said last year, so let me cite the Tory Bible The Daily Telegraph on 15 July:

Theresa May has indicated that…she will not trigger the formal process for leaving the EU until there is an agreed ‘UK approach’
backed by Scotland.”

Was that misreporting by The Daily Telegraph, misspeaking by the Prime Minister, or is she still working on it?
