On Wednesday the Scottish Parliament considered the 3rd Stage reading of the Scottish EU Continuity Bill, which is intended to come into effect if the Scottish Government is unable to reach an agreement with the UK Government on the transfer of powers after Brexit and if the Scottish Government believes passing a Legislative Consent Motion on the Brexit Deal would not be in teh best interests of Scotland.
