Majority of AMs to back controversial Brexit Bill

The Sewel Convention, which is enshrined in the devolution legislation, states Westminster "would not normally legislate with regard to devolved matters in Scotland without the consent of the Scottish Parliament".

The majority of Scottish lawmakers - 93 people - cast their ballots against the bill which defines post-Brexit sharing of power between regional authorities.

The United Kingdom's European Union withdrawal bill is being now debated in the country's parliament and is due for the final vote in the House of Commons in the coming weeks.

"Ignoring the stance taken by the Welsh Government, ignoring the stance taken by members of the Labour Party in the House of Commons and the House of Lords".

MSPs at Holyrood were preparing to take the extraordinary step of passing a motion refusing to give consent to the EU Withdrawal Bill, the legislation paving the way for the UK's departure from the EU.

With the Greens, Scottish Labour and the Liberal Democrats having said they will join the SNP and vote against granting consent, it is certain to be passed when MSPs vote on the matter at 5pm on Tuesday.

Imposing powers on Scotland would be unprecedented and fuel Sturgeon's demands for a second independence referendum, potentially providing the Scottish National party with a further justification for staging one.

Tory sources indicate that May is likely to push the legislation through the Commons without Scottish parliament consent, and hope that the United Kingdom supreme court will rule in her favour after a potentially crucial hearing on the Scottish parliament's powers over Brexit in July.

- How can it be the case that Westminster can introduce legislation against the will of the Scottish Parliament?

The Welsh government agreed to give its consent to the Bill last month but Nicola Sturgeon's government at Holyrood has rejected what it characterises as a unilateral power grab.

It means consent of the devolved legislatures will be sought for any changes to the powers held in Westminster, but if talks become deadlocked, UK Parliament will have the final say.

On that point, a Scottish government source said: "We were open to both, but I think the fundamental point that we've made ever since this bill was published is the issue of consent, that the Scottish Parliament has to agree". On that occasion the UK Government responded by removing those parts of the Bill.

A source said: "It's a nonsense to pretend that the Scottish position is defending devolution". The Scottish Government has said it can't accept it without amendments.

European Union negotiators have rejected both options and Conservative Brexiteers have criticised the prime minister's favoured option of a customs partnership as unworkable and inconsistent with regaining full sovereignty from Brussels.
