Boris Johnson will make his first trip to Scotland as prime minister on Monday, while the leader of the Conservative Party there said he would refuse to leave the EU without an agreement.

On his assumption of power on Wednesday, Johnson pledged that Britain would leave the EU “without reservations” by Oct. 31 and the government stepped up its preparations for a deal without agreement, which some top politicians warned would increase the likelihood of the collapse of the United Kingdom.

Scotland rejected independence by 55 percent to 45 percent in 2014 but then voted for the EU to stay in the 2016 referendum, prompting calls for a second referendum by some who say Britain will pull out of the EU against their will.

Johnson’s commitment to leave the EU, either by agreement or without agreement, led to differences with some within his Conservative Party, including Roth Davidson, Scotland’s party leader. Johnson’s office did not say whether he would meet with Davidson on Monday.

“When I was arguing against the pro-British side of the EU in 2016, I do not remember anyone saying we should get out of the EU without arrangements to help maintain vital trade flowing inexorably between Britain and the European Union,” Davidson said in the Mail on Sunday newspaper in Scotland.

“I think the government should not keep Britain out of the EU without agreement and if that happens I will not support it“He said.
