Liberal Democrat Scotland spokesperson Christine Jardine MP has today called on the UK Government to deliver urgency and clarity as she responded to comments from Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington over the return of devolved powers to the UK from Brussels.
Ms Jardine said:
"It hasn’t been an auspicious first few months in the job for David Lidington. Until we see real progress, with amendments on the table, this is just yet more noise to fill space.
"These negotiations between the UK and Scottish Governments are dragging us to the brink and there is a real lack of opportunity for meaningful consultation and scrutiny.
"It's not good enough to say that the Scottish Government will be consulted over powers returned to Westminster from Brussels. Either the powers are devolved or they are not."
