Paragraph 4.4 of the White Paper speaks of working closely with devolved Administrations for

“an approach that works for the whole and each part of the UK.”

I cannot help but feel that it is déjà vu all over again; so far, this Government have done nothing to demonstrate their intention to work with the devolved Administrations. If the Government continue their unsustainable approach of ignoring the will of the Scottish Parliament in relation to Brexit, and indeed on any other issue, why should the devolved Administrations trust the UK Government on anything?
