Rural and Environment
31st January 2020 by Fergus Ewing MSP
The EU has been a good friend to rural Scotland.
For the whole of the Scottish Parliament’s lifetime, the rural economy has benefitted from our membership.
Over the years, our engagement with it has allowed Scotland to push our case on everything from agriculture and fisheries policy reform, to fishing quotas and forestry. Scotland has had a voice in the room – a room we will no longer be able to enter.

Scotland does not want to leave the EU but there is a strong risk that we may end up leaving without a deal in place on 31st October 2019.
While the Scottish Government is doing as much as it can to mitigate the impact of leaving the EU, we cannot mitigate for every impact.
Leaving the EU will mean things we currently take for granted, or which we agreed to as part of a Member State, will no longer stand.
This note sets out what you need to make sure you and your family can continue to live and work in Scotland after Brexit..
