Davidson: SNP must not scupper fiscal framework talks

The SNP must not use the "grievance narrative" to scupper talks on the fiscal framework, Scottish Conservatives leader Ruth Davidson has said.

The Scottish and UK governments are working on a framework to ensure any new powers for Scotland do not impact negatively on funding.

Speaking to the Daily Politics, Ms Davidson said there was "a deal to be done" that was good both for the UK and for Scotland, but warned that the SNP's "brinkmanship" could be "damaging" to Scotland.

“I would be very disappointed if the SNP used the grievance narrative to walk away from these talks," she told Jo Coburn, adding: "I want a deal."
