Scotland's Brexit Minister has urged MSPs to back calls for changes to the Repeal Bill to guarantee protection for devolved powers.

It will also create temporary powers to amend laws which would no longer operate properly outside the EU because they make reference to European institutions.

The SNP were joined by Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones in voicing protest at the so called "Great Repeal Bill", which will transfer European Union legislation into United Kingdom legislation so it can be altered at a nation state level.

The shadow Brexit Secretary, Sir Keir Starmer MP, has said Labour is "putting the Government on notice" it may vote against the Bill, and possible weakening of environmental protections are top of the party's agenda.

He said: "Scotland will stand the best chance of keeping control of its devolved powers if the Scottish government can act with the full backing of our national Parliament".

"But we also need to make a stand against the United Kingdom government retaining powers that rightfully should come to Scotland once repatriated from the European Union".

He adds: "We are also concerned that the scheme in the bill for correcting devolved law is unlikely to be workable in its current form".

"In particular, it empowers United Kingdom ministers to make changes in devolved policy areas without any involvement of either the Scottish government or the Scottish Parliament".

A UK Government spokesman said: "It is the expectation of the Government that the outcome of this process will be a significant increase in the decision-making power of each devolved administration".

"We welcome the Scottish and Welsh governments recognising common frameworks may be needed in some areas. Our aim is to establish common frameworks only where they are needed".

"Mr Mundell's description of the bill as a powers "bonanza" is quite frankly ludicrous - this is a Westminster power grab laid bare, and his attempts to defend the indefensible do him no credit".

Ms Sturgeon wants membership of the European single market and the customs union to be at the heart of Brexit process, but Prime Minister Theresa May has insisted the United Kingdom will be leaving both.
