BIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) - The leader of the Scottish arm of Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party played down the impact of a row with the European Union over Brexit, saying it may have actually helped restart stalled exit negotiations.

Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservatives, told Sky News that a stormy EU summit in Salzburg had actually “slightly cleared the air” and that she believed there was still a basis for a deal to be done.
