  1. Exiting the European Union: Devolved Matters (27 Apr 2017)

    Patrick Grady: Actually, by the Tories’ logic, Scotland voted twice to remain in the European Union because they told us in 2014 that a vote against independence was a vote to remain in the European Union.
  2. Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (27 Apr 2017)

    Patrick Grady: Can the Secretary of State name one power or policy area that he can definitely guarantee will be devolved to the Scottish Parliament in the event of Brexit?
