Commenting on the publication of the Scottish Affairs Committee report on intergovernmental relations across the UK, Shadow Scottish Secretary Lesley Laird said:

"This report has shone a light on the inadequacies of how the UK Government interacts with the devolved administrations and vindicates what Labour has been saying for well over a year - that intergovernmental mechanisms like the Joint Ministerial Committee need overhauled.

"These are recommendations that must be taken seriously; a failure to do so by the Tory Government will play into the hands of the SNP Scottish Government.

"Labour understands and recognises that wealth and power need to be redistributed and the status quo needs challenged.

“The way our political and economic system works is not serving the people of this country.

“Scottish Labour is committed to Scotland remaining in the UK and reforming that the way Britain that works to ensure that it works for the many, not just the few".
