As the United Kingdom leaves the EU, the Government is committed to delivering the best possible deal for every part of the United Kingdom; a deal which works best for Scottish businesses, Scottish farmers and Scottish fishermen. On 9 February 2017, I travelled to Brussels and met a range of key stakeholders to discuss a variety of topics.
