Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross challenged Nicola Sturgeon on the issue at Holyrood, saying that although she had promised to publish an article on how the system works, it was “not enough” to do so “within a few hours before Parliament is expected to vote ”.

Mr Ross said: “So far there are no details or answers on the SNP’s plans.

“We wanted to examine the content of the Prime Minister’s proposals – but frankly, there is nothing to scrutinize. “

Mr. Ross continued: “We need the details but we don’t have them. We do not know how the regime will be administered or enforced. We do not know if the data issues have been resolved.

“We don’t know if the SNP will rule out extending them indefinitely or deploying them to other locations in the short term.”
