The UK internal market is essential to promote growth, drive productivity and deliver an economy that works for all parts of the UK and the Government is committed to supporting this.

The Scottish Government’s own statistics make clear that 60% of Scottish exports go to the rest of the UK, 1.5 times higher than is exported to the EU and the rest of the world combined.
