Scotland and Wales plot changes to EU repeal bill

Ministers from the Scottish and Welsh governments have met in Cardiff to discuss mutual concerns about the UK government’s recently published bill to transfer all EU law to Westminster.

In a press release dated 27 July, the day of the meeting, the Scottish government said the ministers would focus on how to alter the bill so that it protected the powers of the devolved administrations, rather than letting powers be “taken back by the UK government, as the bill currently proposes”.

Scotland’s Brexit minister Michael Russell described the bill at present as “quite simply an attack on the hard-won powers of the Scottish Parliament and on the principles of devolution”.
