The process that will change the United Kingdom's

:00:08.:00:10.

But just what will that mean for Scotland?

:00:11.:00:15.

The Prime Minister insisted she wanted to agree

:00:16.:00:17.

a deep and special partnership with Europe.

:00:18.:00:20.

But in response the SNP's Westminster leader Angus Robertson

:00:21.:00:23.

called again for a vote on independence,

:00:24.:00:25.

Our political correspondent Nick Eardley reports

:00:26.:00:29.

Another day of history in Westminster. Today's vote will that

:00:30.:00:46.

I commence will change the course of the United Kingdom. It will open a

:00:47.:00:50.

relationship that alter our relationship with Europe

:00:51.:00:54.

fundamentally. Will Brexit be good for Scotland? You think so, but

:00:55.:00:59.

these got his Government disagrees passionately. The Prime Minister

:01:00.:01:03.

arriving in Parliament, one of the most important statements she will

:01:04.:01:06.

ever deliver here, time to coincide with the divorce letter arriving in

:01:07.:01:12.

Brussels. Statement, the primary stuff. A message of unity and a

:01:13.:01:18.

pledge of more powers. It is the expectation of the Government that

:01:19.:01:21.

the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland

:01:22.:01:24.

will see a significant increase in their decision-making power as a

:01:25.:01:28.

result of this process. Horseback still no specifics. But also this

:01:29.:01:33.

promise. When I sit around the negotiating table, and will

:01:34.:01:36.

represent every person in the UK, young and old, rich and poor, city,

:01:37.:01:41.

town, country, and the villages in between. ? The SNP said a duty wide

:01:42.:01:48.

agreement had not been delivered. The Prime Minister promised an

:01:49.:01:53.

agreement, there is no agreement. She has broken her promise. If she

:01:54.:01:57.

remains intransigent, and if she denies Scotland a choice in our

:01:58.:02:01.

future, she will make Scottish independence inevitable. And here it

:02:02.:02:10.

is, the letter that was delivered to present task LA today. It says the

:02:11.:02:15.

top should be constructive and respectful and admitted task ahead

:02:16.:02:18.

is momentous, but says it she be within the grasp of the UK and EU

:02:19.:02:24.

defied a deal within two years. If the message today from the

:02:25.:02:29.

Government one of optimism? It is very positive, we what to form a new

:02:30.:02:34.

relationship with the EU, and confirming that we will be European

:02:35.:02:37.

but not part of the youth, that we be looking to take these

:02:38.:02:41.

negotiations followed in a constructive fashion, get a deal

:02:42.:02:44.

that works for Scotland and the whole of the UK. Some disagree. They

:02:45.:02:49.

think today is a bad one, to make Scotland was. It is a sad day for

:02:50.:02:55.

Scotland and the rest of the UK and Europe, for a long time we have

:02:56.:03:00.

become wealthier, healthier, fairer and safer as a result of our

:03:01.:03:07.

partnership with the U. Enormously bad news, not just for Scotland but

:03:08.:03:11.

for businesses and people's jobs right across the length and breadth

:03:12.:03:16.

of the United Kingdom. We can't get off this boss, but we need to do is

:03:17.:03:20.

engage with this process, make sure that what we want is included in the

:03:21.:03:25.

negotiations and we are holding the Government to account. The Brexit

:03:26.:03:28.

process has begun. Where it takes the UK and Scotland, those questions

:03:29.:03:33.

will be answered in the coming years.

:03:34.:03:36.

The First Minister has warned that Brexit is a dangerous

:03:37.:03:38.

And Scottish Ministers say the Article 50 timetable makes

:03:39.:03:42.

the case for an independence referendum even more compelling.

:03:43.:03:45.

The call came as the UK Government turned down proposals

:03:46.:03:47.

But Conservatives insist a referendum would be

:03:48.:03:52.

This from our political editor Brian Taylor.

:03:53.:04:02.

Nicola Sturgeon says she wishes the Prime Minister well in her efforts

:04:03.:04:08.

to secure the best possible Brexit deal. Good luck. By visiting a

:04:09.:04:15.

Glasgow currently creating 300 jobs to do the links she wants that

:04:16.:04:19.

Brexit will be damaging. There's no doubt that what is happening does

:04:20.:04:22.

represent something of a leap in the dark, some nine months after the EU

:04:23.:04:27.

referendum, albeit article 50 has been triggered, the Prime Minister

:04:28.:04:31.

still cannot answer basic questions about what Brexit will mean for

:04:32.:04:36.

businesses, the economy. The First Minister had urged a distinctive

:04:37.:04:39.

deal involving Scottish access to the European single market, but

:04:40.:04:44.

Russell, his Scottish counterpart, he stresses shared ground and shared

goals for the talks. Applicant is clearer than ever that Scotland will

need very strong voiced standing up for Scottish interests. At the end

:04:58.:05:01.

of the process, which is not clearly delineated, will require to make a

:05:02.:05:06.

choice. We can put Scotland's future in Scotland by the hands are can be

:05:07.:05:10.

dragged along with a Tory high Brexit. We deserve that choice. The

:05:11.:05:16.

Conservatives say they would even conflict that I contemplate an

:05:17.:05:19.

independence referendum until Brexit has not fully side but settle down.

:05:20.:05:22.

We might we have been quite clear that now is not the time to be

:05:23.:05:24.

putting a second independence referendum back on the table. Now is

:05:25.:05:32.

not the time to be taught about a second independence referendum.

:05:33.:05:39.

Labour's Kezia Dugdale in Wales today set a plague on both houses.

:05:40.:05:44.

What do people want is not to be forced between two gymnast listens,

:05:45.:05:47.

and that is what we have got to get back to. Iron majorities quite

happy. I've seen it for years. More and more blame. A play about Brexit

:05:53.:05:57.

text to the stage in Glasgow. But after lengthy rehearsals, the

:05:58.:06:00.

political drama has no open for real.

:06:01.:06:02.

Formal negotiations with Brussels aren't expected to begin

:06:03.:06:04.

So what do EU politicians and officials think about Scotland's

:06:05.:06:08.

Our political correspondent, Glenn Campbell reports from Brussels.

:06:09.:06:18.

There is no guide to the EU's capital city expert enough to say

:06:19.:06:29.

what Brexit will bring. I suppose it will not be a good thing and I hope

:06:30.:06:34.

that the Scottish lead the UK and then they can remain with us. I hope

:06:35.:06:39.

that the Scottish lead the UK and so. Because a majority in Scotland

:06:40.:06:42.

voted Remain, the First Minister wanted to keep ours, if not the

:06:43.:06:50.

whole UK, inside the EU. In a Norway style arrangement. But Norway's

:06:51.:06:54.

minister for the single market says membership isn't sure such a deal is

:06:55.:07:02.

possible. It could be both a part of the EU and part of the agreement. We

:07:03.:07:10.

are open for all solutions. When Scotland vote for independence,

:07:11.:07:13.

would it be welcomed into Norway style membership of the single

:07:14.:07:17.

market? That is the same answer. We would be open-minded. Cooperation

:07:18.:07:23.

between countries and Europe is important. Scottish ministers will

:07:24.:07:27.

be pleased to hear that opened my Guinness, because they are coming to

:07:28.:07:30.

think of a Norway style deal as a staging post to fuel EU membership.

:07:31.:07:37.

Scotland votes for independence after the UK has left the European

:07:38.:07:41.

Union. Theresa May once Brexit debate in before any fresh vote on

:07:42.:07:45.

independence, Nicola Sturgeon thinks we don't know enough in 18 months to

:07:46.:07:53.

two years. In Brussels, which is not the shape of any Brexit deal should

:07:54.:07:57.

be clear by then. I hope we will be able to manage to come to a

:07:58.:08:03.

compromise a deal that will cover the divorce Bill and also the future

:08:04.:08:07.

relationship. Nicola Sturgeon has put lots of effort and expanding our

:08:08.:08:10.

position on Brexit to European leaders. There is understanding

:08:11.:08:14.

here. But most senior figures are reluctant to be drawn into our

:08:15.:08:18.

debate. As far as Scotland is concerned, or those who voted to

:08:19.:08:23.

stay, of course they feel unhappy and that they consider racers were

:08:24.:08:28.

not taken into account, but it is totally up to the UK. It is not up

:08:29.:08:38.

to the people of Scotland,... Organising future live. Back in

:08:39.:08:42.

Brussels main square, a visiting leader who is decided his country

:08:43.:08:47.

should eventually join the EU will stop to get closer and closer to our

:08:48.:08:52.

family, where we feel we belong. Do you think it is funny that Georgia

:08:53.:08:55.

is try to get anywhere in the UK is coming out? One might think it is

:08:56.:09:00.

funny but there's nothing funny. It is a decision of the UK which you

:09:01.:09:06.

need to respect. Different countries, different choices.

:09:07.:09:09.

The opening of the new Queensferry Crossing has been delayed again.

:09:10.:09:11.

It's being blamed on bad weather affecting the construction work.

:09:12.:09:15.

The bridge now won't be open to traffic

:09:16.:09:18.

until July or August, as Morag Kinniburgh reports.

:09:19.:09:26.

Weather is blamed for the delay. Scottish Government's flagship

:09:27.:09:34.

projects was the open before and it now. Now it will be July or August.

:09:35.:09:39.

What is important we have an iconic structure which can't properly see

:09:40.:09:42.

today, we have to have it completed safely to the correct standards. The

:09:43.:09:45.

contractor faces fines for these delays. We took the effect of

:09:46.:09:51.

whether immediately leading up to it, and added some additional

:09:52.:09:57.

factors. What we have found especially in the last two or the

:09:58.:10:00.

monster that weather has been far greater than we expected. The

:10:01.:10:03.

Scottish Government tested it will be no extra cost to the public purse

:10:04.:10:08.

because of this further delay. It says a six-year project will come in

:10:09.:10:13.

at around a quarter of the billion pounds below budget. Opposition

:10:14.:10:17.

politicians are critical. They wonder if the timetable is where

:10:18.:10:20.

ever realistic. Why wasn't the Scottish Parliament told earlier?

:10:21.:10:26.

When exactly did they know about this situation, and was it regarded

:10:27.:10:31.

by the Scottish garment as a good day to bury bad news because the was

:10:32.:10:36.

elsewhere? Lorries on the existing bridge cost closes this winter, but

:10:37.:10:43.

drivers will be hoping there's no further disruption to either

:10:44.:10:43.

crossing. A report into an outbreak

:10:44.:10:45.

of Ecoli O157, in which a three-year-old child died,

:10:46.:10:48.

has concluded Dunsyre Blue 17 people required hospital

:10:49.:10:51.

treatment as a result of the outbreak between July and

:10:52.:10:56.

September last year. It led to further investigations

:10:57.:10:59.

of cheese produced by Errington Cheese in Lanarkshire,

:11:00.:11:02.

and of the production processes The company said there

:11:03.:11:05.

was nothing found linking their cheese

:11:06.:11:08.

to the outbreak, and that more detailed investigations

:11:09.:11:10.

into the cause were needed. Well, It's over to Christopher now,

:11:11.:11:12.

with the weather outlook Cloudy conditions across the country

elsewhere too. Tomorrow morning, Don is relatively dry but cloudy, parts

the central belt by lunchtime, but that every of rain is likely to

clear away eastwards. If you glad we can see that whether connected to a

of rain, it is dry and has a quite warm. Tempters in the low 20s. It

:12:39.:12:42.

from the south, and that moves its way across the country as we head

:12:49.:12:53.

Most of the rain on Friday will be in the west and a little further
