HoC: Sewel Convention

14th June 2018

Earlier this afternoon, my SNP colleagues and I questioned the Secretary of State for Scotland on the Sewel Convention and the EU Withdrawal Bill’s impact on Scotland.

Scotland has been blatantly disrespected by the UK Government this week. Tuesday’s events, which saw only 15 minutes afforded to a discussion on amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill and which has resulted in Westminster ripping the powers of the Scottish Parliament from under it, highlight the Tory powergrab well underway at Westminster.

Despite my respect for the Secretary of State, it is vital he finally begins to stand up for Scotland instead of allowing himself to be constantly treated with contempt by his own Government.
