Constitution Committee: Parliamentary scrutiny of treaties.
Witnesses: (at 10:00 AM) Rt Hon Sir Alan Duncan MP, Minister of State for Europe and the Americas Rt Hon. David Lidington MP, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster
As I have made clear to the House previously, the situation in Catalonia is a matter for Spain. The UK strongly supports the rule of law and is of the view that questions related to the issue of Catalan independence should be resolved within the proper constitutional and legal channels of Spain.
This is a matter for the Spanish courts. Every democracy has its own rules, laws and procedures. We fully support the proper implementation of the rule of law in Spain, and it is not for us to interfere in the way that the hon. Gentleman suggests.
