Edinburgh West MP Christine Jardine has been announced as the the Liberal Democrats’ new Scotland spokesperson at Westminster.

She will also continue to cover digital, culture, media and sport in the House of Commons.

Jardine, who was one of four Lib Dem MPs elected in Scotland in June 2017, is already a member of the Scottish Affairs Committee.

 Following the announcement, she said: "I am thrilled to be Scotland spokesperson in this unprecedented period for our country.

 "In these uncertain times it is of paramount importance that we, as MPs, hold the UK Government to account for its policy towards Scotland.

“Brexit and centralising governments in both Westminster and Holyrood put our communities and prosperity at risk.

 “As a member of the Scottish Affairs committee, I am already advocating on behalf of Scotland at Westminster and this new post will only serve to enhance what I can do to make Scotland’s voice heard.
