The Conservatives have imposed ‘direct rule’ over the Scottish and Welsh parliaments

Post by Admin on Wed Dec 13, 2017 10:42 pm

The Conservatives effectively voted to impose direct rule over the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly late on 12 December, according to Plaid Cymru. The government voted down Amendment 158 to the EU Withdrawal Bill by 315 votes to 291. Amendment 158 would have stopped ministers using ‘Henry VIII powers‘ to change the fundamental legislation behind parliaments in Scotland and Wales.
