SNP MPs storm out of PMQs in ‘Brexit power grab’ protest by Paul Miles Published

Making a stand SNP leader Ian Blackford in the House of Commons

Turning to the speaker, he said: "Under the circumstances, given the disrespect shown, I have got no option but to ask that this House sits in private".

The SNP MP Ian Blackford leaves the House of Commons after repeated clashes with the Speaker, John Bercow, during PMQs.

"The PM silenced Scotland's voice".

He said the people of Scotland had not been given the courtesy of proper debate on Brexit issues that will affect them during a debate on Tuesday night.

The SNP MP told the same programme: "He ought to resign and the fact we have seen powers taken from the Scottish Parliament and our elected representatives have not been able to debate this is an utter, utter disgrace".

Rising to ask a question during the session, Blackford said: "The Prime Minister gave a commitment that she would treat Scotland as a union of equals". That is a democratic outrage.

"My job, my colleagues' job is to stand up for the powers of the Scottish Parliament".

He stated: "I really do hope that the people of Scotland listened very carefully to what the prime minister said, because the reality of the situation is that powers enshrined under the Scotland Act 1998 are being grabbed back by this parliament today".

Government wins Brexit bill vote after concessions
Conservative lawmaker Phillip Lee resigned as a justice minister Tuesday so he could speak out against the policy on Brexit. The government averted a rebellion on Tuesday over whether Parliament should have a decisive say in such a scenario.

The unprecedented event brought PMQs to a temporary halt as Mr Bercow refused his demands.

He was protesting about the way Scotland had been treated over Brexit and in particular in relation to the EU Withdrawal Bill that the SNP claims takes back devolved powers such as support for farmers and control of territorial sea waters, returning them directly to Westminster.

The suspension prompted all SNP MPs to walk out of Commons chamber, pointing and jeering at Tory MPs. My mixed sequence of advice is that is better for the vote to be conducted at the conclusion of questions to the prime minister...

While Conservatives at Westminster say some of these must come to Parliament to allow for common frameworks to be established in areas such as agriculture and environmental regulations, ministers at Holyrood fear the powers of the Scottish Parliament could be restrained for up to seven years.

Navarro apologizes for 'special place in hell' remark about Canada's prime minister
From a big-picture perspective, there are concerns about how the rest of the world sees the United States globally, he added. The summit ended in disarray: US President Donald Trump said the US would not endorse the joint statement from the summit .

The heated scenario occurred during lively talks about Brexit as Prime Minister Theresa May faced tough questioning from ministers over the EU Withdrawal Bill. Look at this morning's interview with Scottish secretary David Mundell, who was repeatedly asked why there was next to no time given for debate of issues related to devolution.

The Scottish Parliament has already voted against giving its formal consent to the Withdrawal Bill, with SNP, Labour, Green and Lib Dem MSPs united in this stance.
