The Scotland Office, and other Departments, are working closely with the Department for Exiting the European Union on all aspects of exiting the European Union. I have regular discussions with the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union on matters relating to the UK’s Exit. In addition, the White Paper was the subject of discussion with the devolved administrations at the Joint Ministerial Committee on EU Negotiations on 8 February. The third chapter of this White Paper explains how, as we leave the EU, we will aim to strengthen the union between the four nations of the United Kingdom. To this end we are working to ensure we get the best possible deal for the whole of the UK.
