PMQs: UK GOVERNMENT OVERSEEING DEMOLITION OF DEVOLUTION

SNP Westminster Leader Ian Blackford MP has accused the Prime Minister of demolishing the devolution settlements, and called on her to redouble efforts to work with the devolved administrations to find agreement as the UK prepares to leave the EU.

Mr Blackford said the UK government published long awaited amendments to Clause 11, but without agreement from the devolved administrations. 

Commenting, Ian Blackford MP said:

“This Prime Minister famously claimed the UK was made up of “equal partners” but on Monday, these long awaited amendments were published without agreement from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

“What an irony now that she’s overseeing the demolition of the devolved settlements.

“In 1997 the Tories were happy to oppose the re-establishment of the Scottish Parliament, now in 2018 they’re happy to systematically destroy the settlement our Parliament thrives on.”
