European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Anna McMorrin: In the past few weeks, we have spelled out many reasons why this Bill will leave the UK worse off in terms of human rights, workers’ rights, animal rights and environmental protections. However, it is designed to leave our devolved Governments and Parliaments worse off too.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I thank my hon. Friend, and I completely agree. Wales voted for a devolved Government 20 years ago. I was part of that campaign, and I was proud to see the then UK Labour Government bring that about. We now see a more successful and confident Wales than we did two decades ago, but I fear that we are about to go backwards. The Tories have made it clear that, when it comes to devolution, they...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Anna McMorrin: I think we are seeing the beginnings of a constitutional crisis right now actually. [Interruption.] I will go on to explain if the hon. Member for Stirling (Stephen Kerr) will let me.

We need only an...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Anna McMorrin: Absolutely. I completely agree. That just shows that what we have here in a number of policy areas is a constitutional crisis emerging and the UK Government acting as the Government of England, not the Government of the UK, leading to a number of possible conflicts of interest when it comes to imposing pan-UK structures.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: “Creation of UK-wide frameworks (4 Dec 2017)

Anna McMorrin: As the hon. Gentleman knows, I am not fanning any flames of nationalism; I am talking about democracy in this place and the democracy of the UK.
