GILT SUMMARY: SNP Brexit Secretary Mike Russel has stated that the Scottish

another independence vote in this scenario, it is difficult to envisage
Westminster backing it.
- Outgoing Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland Philip Lane has stated that
the risk of a no-deal Brexit is rising, mirroring the sentiment held across much
of the EU.
