Scottish Conservatives want emphasis off immigration and on economy

GETTYAlex Salmond the former SNP leader has lost his seat

Theresa May is holding talks with the leader of the Scottish Conservatives as she attempts to move on from last week's election result.

The Tories upped their seat count from one to 13 in Thursday's vote while the party down south lost constituencies.

But she has hinted that she wants Mrs May to change course on her Brexit objectives. Ms Davidson, who has been widely praised for her leadership, suggested the party should concentrate more on the economy and free trade in Brexit negotiations, rather than curbing immigration levels.

Ms Davidson called for a fresh approach, building cross-party support for what she called an "open Brexit", with less of a focus on immigration in withdrawing from the European Union.

Asked whether Davidson supported single market membership the source said "yes, but she is aware that we are negotiating and you don't always get what you want in a negotiation".

Scottish Conservatives leader Ruth Davidson has reacted to the party's poor nationwide election performance with a call for Tories to re-think plans for Brexit, raising the prospect of a rebellion north of the border.

Mundell has served for two years in the cabinet post while he was the sole Conservative MP north of the border.

Ms Davidson's performance in leading the party to its best result in Scotland since 1983 has seen her mentioned as a possible successor to Mrs May - although she does not now have a seat in the House of Commons.

Speaking in London, Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, said supporters of a so-called hard Brexit have been left "dead in the water" by May's failure to secure a majority in last week's election.
