Labour shadow leader of the house Thangam Debbonaire asking Jacob Rees Mogg for a statement from the government on the "future of the union." She points out that even the SNP aren't "as rude as he about his Scottish colleagues".
Rees-Mogg says Douglas Ross "has office within the Conservative Party and it seems to me that people who hold office ought to support the leader of the party. That is the honourable and proper thing to do."
He says we are "particularly fortunate to have the Scottish Secretary that we have. He is such a formidable figure in Scottish politics and offers the strongest, the firmest, the clearest leadership."
