David Mundell MP admits UK Government willing to act in contradiction of Scottish Parliament

Today, David Mundell MP Secretary Of State for Scotland, admitted that the UK Government would take the explicit refusal of consent by the Scottish Parliament as a ‘consent decision’, allowing the Tory Government to legislate in devolved areas of policy.
He described himself as ‘happy’ with the amended clause 11, that completely undermines Scottish devolution and would restrict the The Scottish Parliament‘s powers for up to 7 years.
While the Secretary of State for Scotland appears unwilling or unable to act in Scotland’s interests, the Scottish National Party has been clear- we must not allow the Tories to sell out devolution and undermine our Parliament.
