Tax credit powers to remain with Westminster as SNP amendments to Scotland Bill fall
SNP MPs blast debate time given to Bill on Scotland's future devolved powers
LAST-MINUTE proposals to give Holyrood powers over tax credits in the Scotland Bill have been voted down by unionist MPs.
Following last year's cross-party Smith Commission and subsequent report, debate on the Scotland Bill has been determining which powers are granted to Holyrood following the devolution 'vow' of the three pro-union party leaders in September 2014. The legislation was voted through its final reading in the House of Commons on Monday night.
