NatCen and UK in a Changing Europe report: What Scotland is Making of Brexit

‘People in Scotland have become more critical of the way that both the UK government and the EU are handling Brexit’ says a January 2018 report (pdf) from NatCen and UK in a Changing Europe.

In this report, Sir John Curtice highlights what Scotland is making of Brexit.

The report finds:

  • A majority of voters in Scotland think that all the decisions about fishing and farming in Scotland that are currently made by the EU should be made by the Scottish Government after Brexit
  • A majority of voters in Scotland would like the UK to maintain free trade with the EU but end freedom of movement. However, they are more likely than voters south of the border to prioritise free trade than immigration control
  • But a majority of voters in Scotland think that, after Brexit, the rules on trade with the EU and on immigration should be the same in Scotland as in the rest of the EU.
