Answered by: Derek Mackay 7 March 2019
The Scottish Government’s Chief Economist published analysis on 21 February indicating that a No Deal Brexit could be expected to push the Scottish economy into recession during 2019. The analysis indicated that there is the potential for the economy to contract by between 2.5%-7% depending on the way in which a No Deal Brexit evolves.
