Scotland to introduce own Brexit bill, increasing pressure on UK government

EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Scotland’s devolved government will shortly introduce its own, alternative Brexit bill, increasing pressure on the UK government over legislation needed to pass in Britain’s national parliament.

The “continuity bill”, to be announced on Tuesday afternoon in the Scottish parliament, aims to ensure stability of devolved law once Britain leaves the EU, The Herald newspaper said.
