The prospect of Britain leaving the European Union has dominated

:00:08.:00:11.

debate at both Westminster and Holyrood.

:00:12.:00:14.

Under challenge from the SNP, the Prime Minister said

:00:15.:00:16.

she would not give a "running commentary" on negotiations.

:00:17.:00:18.

But, in the Scottish Parliament, the First Minister said

:00:19.:00:20.

that was because Theresa May didn't have a clue what to do next.

:00:21.:00:24.

Our political editor Brian Taylor has the details.

absolutely recall of the year the European Union. It is the single

:00:43.:00:45.

market that Obama is talking about when it said that it was worried

:00:46.:00:48.

that it would lose connections with its British investment and the

:00:49.:00:52.

remainder of the European Union. So, its epicentre of the old thing. Of

:00:53.:00:55.

course, there could be continued British membership of the single

:00:56.:00:59.

market if that is possible. There could be limited forms of access to

:01:00.:01:03.

the single market. The brightness of the challenged in the Commons by

:01:04.:01:08.

Angus Robertson of the SNP to see whether she supported full

:01:09.:01:12.

membership of the single market. She was asked that twice and twice she

:01:13.:01:19.

declined to answer. Here is a reply. The United Kingdom will leave the

:01:20.:01:21.

European Union and we will build a new relationship with the European

:01:22.:01:26.

Union. The new relationship will include control of the movement of

:01:27.:01:31.

people from the EU into the UK and it will include the right deal for

:01:32.:01:37.

trade in goods and services. And that formulation, that formula used

by the prime minister did not and brisk the First Minister, Nicola

Sturgeon. -- impress. She had a basement on what has moved with the

:01:48.:01:52.

guard to Brexit and Scotland's there on. She accused the primers are

having a of clarity with regard to Brexit and, in particular, to the

:01:57.:02:03.

single market. Ad units to think it is acceptable to have a cloud of

:02:04.:02:07.

secrecy hanging over the UK's Government's negotiating decision.

:02:08.:02:14.

It's not ideal to have a Prime Minister who is unwilling to answer

:02:15.:02:17.

the question if we should be remaining in the single market or

:02:18.:02:20.

not. The UK, do not want a running

:02:21.:02:25.

commentary, they want the position to be formulated and then hard

bargaining with the European Union. A bit of a row in the Labour Party

connived with Jeremy Corbyn talking about free trade dogma and a

:02:35.:02:41.

spokesman later said that they would not necessarily back membership of

:02:42.:02:45.

the single market. It has caused a big rally Nicola Sturgeon pounced on

:02:46.:02:48.

it. Tonight, Kenya Dugdale stressed the cheat sheet and autonomous

:02:49.:02:55.

decision in her autonomous Scottish party. -- that she. She backed the

:02:56.:02:59.

Scottish Parliament and the Scottish element.

:03:00.:03:02.

If you thought finding a high street bank branch was becoming

:03:03.:03:04.

increasingly difficult, you'd be right.

:03:05.:03:06.

According to BBC research, Scotland has lost or is about to lose almost

:03:07.:03:09.

150 branches across six of the biggest names

:03:10.:03:11.

They've been familiar sights on our high streets for years but are

:03:12.:03:24.

disappearing fast. In Aberdeen alone, nine bank branches have

:03:25.:03:30.

either closed in your last year or are earmarked for closure. And it's

:03:31.:03:34.

not just there. BBC analysis has found that the country is losing

:03:35.:03:39.

almost 150 branches over 18 months. Edinburgh lost the nose, more than

:03:40.:03:44.

Moray. Another eight in the islands. Moray. Another eight in the islands.

Wi-Fi connection on the mobile brands. We will have iPad type

tablets. The brown share will close next month minivan will become the

:04:36.:04:40.

only option. For villages, it's a big change. I have always been used

:04:41.:04:47.

to going into a branch. I would still like to continue doing that.

:04:48.:04:53.

It's so gave transferring but you can withdraw from a phone. In a

:04:54.:05:04.

shrinking retail sector, filling the empty branches is not easy. But this

former Santander on Aberdeen's union Street has been turned into an

:05:12.:05:17.

estate agency. They say it's likely that retailers will snap them up.

:05:18.:05:21.

The big retailers are first and foremost going to look at shopping

:05:22.:05:26.

centres and retail outlets. I think the larger city centre bank branches

:05:27.:05:35.

lend themselves better to restaurants and two bars and coffee

:05:36.:05:40.

houses, nightclubs. The rate of banking is changing as people shift

:05:41.:05:47.

online. But that's changing the face of the high Street, to add more

:05:48.:05:49.

branches close for good. The chief inspector of prisons has

Health managers want to shut the Edinburgh unit -

Alex has had many operations. He doesn't want the centre to shocked.

available. Control of Smoke Pollution Act Glasgow. -- Glasgow.

:09:48.:09:57.

Experts say quality of care will suffer as Glasgow's results are

:09:58.:10:01.

worse than Edinburgh's. If you look at the Freedom of information

:10:02.:10:03.

releases, you will find that unfortunately, if you are referred

:10:04.:10:06.

to Glasgow, you will end up with more operations. There are more

:10:07.:10:11.

problems relating to universe children who won't be able to

:10:12.:10:15.

develop normal speech by the age of five. The authorities stress this is

:10:16.:10:19.

not a cost-cutting exercise and rejected claims that Glasgow's

:10:20.:10:21.

results are worse. No option is off the table, we are considering all

:10:22.:10:26.

options. What is important to recognise is that if there are any

:10:27.:10:29.

moves, what is maintained locally as the services that provide

:10:30.:10:36.

reasonable. Alex's family say it is not about half what they have to

:10:37.:10:41.

travel to surgery but the joint annuity of quality for all of

:10:42.:10:43.

Scotland's cleft children. Scottish food and drink companies

:10:44.:10:45.

expect to create more jobs and increase their sales

:10:46.:10:47.

in the next five years. Many see Brexit as an opportunity to

:10:48.:10:57.

grow. 100 firms were questioned for a Bank

:10:58.:11:01.

of Scotland survey. It found companies expect

:11:02.:11:03.

to increase their turnover by an average of 24% over

:11:04.:11:05.

the next five years. It also forecasts 14,000 jobs

:11:06.:11:07.

will be created in that time. Let's get the weather
