TORY GOVERNMENT FOUND IN CONTEMPT OF PARLIAMENT

SNP CALL ON TORIES TO END “DUCK AND DIVE” BREXIT APPROACH 

The SNP has called on the Tories to bring to an end their disregard for parliamentary process, after the government was extraordinarily found to be in contempt of Parliament today.

MPs held Theresa May's government in contempt over its decision to publish a summary rather than the full legal advice on the Withdrawal Agreement.

Responding to the vote, Peter Grant MP said:

“Extraordinarily, this Tory government continues to stumble from one shambolic episode to another. Today, the government has been found in contempt of parliament over its persistent refusal to publish the full legal advice on the Withdrawal Agreement.

“Since the EU referendum more than two years ago, the Tories have side-lined parliament at any given opportunity to avoid due scrutiny over its Brexit plans.

“Today’s vote should serve as a clear sign to Theresa May that her crumbling government cannot continue down this road, and it must now end its duck and dive approach to parliamentary process."
