This afternoon, only a few minutes ago, David Mundell, the Secretary of State for Scotland, and the only Conservative in Scotland stood up to commence the Second Reading of the Scotland Bill.

Whilst the SNP in the form of Ian Blackford, the new MP for Ross, Skye & Lochaber, have already intervened in this debate.  Unexpected contributions have also been made by the Conservative Sir Edward Leigh, who suggested that Full Fiscal Autonomy may make the Scottish Parliament more accountable.

Today is the first day of four of scrutiny of this legisaltion.  It is likely that there will be attempts to change this legisation.  This Bill will impact on Scottish Business, how it will do so will require to be monitored.
