From January 2021, powers in over 100 policy areas previously exercised at an EU level will flow directly to the Scottish Parliament, reinforcing its standing as one of the most powerful devolved parliaments in the world. I have regular discussions with Cabinet colleagues on a range of matters relating to Scottish devolution and the transition period.
