Scotland Bill ‘will be axed’

THE Scotland Bill, intended to hand limited new powers to Holyrood, will be ditched amid growing calls for “devo-max”, Edinburgh-based Labour peer Lord Foulkes has predicted.

The former Lothians MSP said: “The message I have got from MSPs is that the Bill is not enough for the Scottish Parliament.

“It is beginning to dawn on people that it’s a dead parrot.”
