European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 20 (21 Jan 2020)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: The intention behind this amendment is to provide a key reassurance to Scotland and Wales. As we know, Clause 38 as it stands is pretty meaningless. As we said in Committee, it was added basically as a sop to the European Reform Group. However, as the Explanatory Notes make clear, the clause makes no material difference to the scope of Parliament’s powers. The problem with it is more what...
