European Union (Withdrawal) Bill

The passing of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill to the committee stage marks a dark day for devolution and democracy in the UK.

Both Inverclyde and Scotland, as a whole, voted overwhelmingly to remain in Europe – and that has to be respected.

The focus will continue to be on protecting Scotland’s interests and ensuring devolved competences, such as agriculture and fisheries, transfer to the Scottish Parliament and are not swallowed up by this Tory Government.
