Yesterday, the Scottish Parliament voted to refuse to give consent to the UK’s European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, arguing that it would restrict the power of the devolved parliament. Specifically, at present there are some 158 areas in which policy that would usually be the domain of devolved administrations is presently determined in Brussels. There is little argument in 134 of these areas where policy will, post-Brexit, be directly repatriated to the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly. In 24 areas, however, the UK government intends to repatriate policy directly to Westminster (at least for a period).
