Scottish Parliament REFUSES to give consent for Westminster Brexit bill — BREXIT BETRAYAL

Spain and Catalonia could learn from Scotland Sturgeon says

That is why I must recommend the Scottish Parliament votes against accepting the bill in its current form.

Conservative MPs supported the Bill.

The decision by the Scottish Parliament to refuse to give its consent to the Brexit Bill is a powerful, but largely symbolic, gesture.

Welsh and Scottish ministers were working together against the bill before the deal - and the Scottish government remains opposed.

SNP member of the Scottish parliament (MSP) Christina McKelvie said on Tuesday that clause 11 would allow Ms May's government to start dismantling the devolution framework on which the Scottish parliament is based. He said the government would press ahead with the Bill but suggested it would be open to amending it to reflect Scottish concerns. Welsh finance secretary Mark Drakeford said "this is a deal we can work with which has required compromise on both sides", and the Welsh Assembly is expected to approve the agreement today.

"I hope the UK Government will make this simple change before the legislation is passed and respect the devolution settlement Scotland voted for".

"These plans have been backed by the Labour Government in Wales".

But Plaid Cymru AMs were vocal in their opposition.

Plaid AM Adam Price said: "We are joining a very select club of national Parliaments, if we pass this motion today, that have voluntarily chose to cede their own authority".

Scotland's parliament is expected to formally reject legislation for taking Britain out of the European Union today. The prime minister briefed Conservative backbenchers on Monday about the two options her ministers are considering: a customs partnership which see Britain collecting tariffs on behalf of the EU; and a combination of technological and administrative measures created to diminish friction on a UK-EU customs border.

A source close to the negotiations said: "It's incredible that the Scottish government are now giving the impression that there was never any prospect of them signing up to a deal of this sort and that it's a constitutional outrage".

"So the Scots walked away from the option they supposedly preferred", the source added.

"The mechanism for us is not really the issue, it's the issue of the consent of the parliament".

Scottish Conservatives went further, accusing the First Minister to seeking to provoke a crisis over Brexit as part of efforts to push for a second independence referendum.

Scottish Brexit spokesman Neil Findlay said: "Labour stands ready to work with other parties to find a solution".

"Devolution is the settled constitutional will not just of the Scottish people, of the whole of the United Kingdom", he told BBC Radio 4's Today.

As such, the Scottish Government insists all these powers should come to it, hence the claim from SNP ministers that the EU Withdrawal Bill is a "power grab".

Devolved administrations must give their consent for Westminster to legislate in areas they would normally do so.
