'They know we have an alternative': Continuity Bill passed by parliament
Holyrood votes in favour of emergency legislation at final stage as Tories deride democracy
THE SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT has voted in favour of the Continuity Bill, the Scottish Government’s emergency legislative alternative to the EU Withdrawal Bill, by 95 votes to 32.
The result came shortly after news broke that the Welsh Assembly had successfully passed its own Continuity Bill. There is now a period of four weeks in which a legal challenge may be made to the UK Supreme Court in order to dispute the Continuity Bill’s legality.
