Home Office snubs Scottish Parliament Committee

This week representatives of the Home Office refused to appear before the Scottish Parliament’s European and External Relations Committee.

The Home Office was invited to give evidence on citizenship and immigration, but rejected the invitation.

This is just the latest snub to the Scottish Parliament from the UK government, following the refusal of Employment Minister Esther McVey to formally meet the Scottish Parliament’s Welfare Reform Committee.

This is despite the 2010 Tory manifesto stating that the “Prime Minister and other Ministers will go to Holyrood for questioning on a regular basis”.
