SNPs walk out of PMQs after Westminster leader kicked out

Scottish National Party MPs walked out to protest the short amount of time given to debate Scotland-related issues. The SNP accused the British government of trying to seize powers that will be handed back from Brussels after Brexit and which the SNP believes should go to Scotland's devolved parliament. Ian Blackford, the SNP leader in Parliament, called the situation "a democratic outrage." "Scotland's voice has not been heard," said Blackford, who was expelled from the chamber for repeatedly challenging the Speaker on the issue, sparking a walkout by his colleagues.
