To make sure that we do have greater accountability in the way the money has been spent in this institution and by the Government. Mr Davis also said that Brexit means devolution we live, eventually, need another rethink. And there was a nod to that in the Prime Minister's big Brexit speech in London earlier. Some Labour ATMs are backing this bill to protect powers they already have like over agriculture, with EU negotiations due to start soon.

The First Minister is eyeing further powers including attacks on plane tickets, a passenger duty, devolving it would allow the Welsh government to make flights from Cardiff cheaper than those in England. The Welsh Tory leader would like that duty devolved, but, for now, he thinks this bill strikes the right balance. I am particularly pleased to say that income tax will be coming to this institution.

Some powers over energy, more power over tax. For some the Wales Bill has a pick and mix real that left them undernourished. It was a long, detailed and finally balanced debate.

It'll give welsh ministers power over energy, transport, teacher's pay and some control of income tax. But the leader of the Welsh Conservatives is already saying devolution will eventually need another rethink as powers come back from Brussels to Britain.

Wales can take confidence from what she said about insuring powers that the right place. She also said that the decision-making powers that the Assembly has at the moment will not be removed in any way as a result of axing the European Union. This is a good deal for the whole of the United Kingdom, of which Wales is a fundamental part.

We heard her there and say that as far as powers were concerned she wanted to ensure the right powers are transferred to Cardiff, which powers would they be? I think we can see that the Prime Minister has shown strong leadership today. She said that 12 objectives of negotiations, of which Wales is a fundamental part.

Part of that will mean working very carefully to ensure that as powers are repatriated from Brussels back to Britain, the right powers are returned to Westminster, and be right powers are passed to the devolved administrations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Good evening. A Brexit that works for the whole of the United Kingdom. That's the promise from Theresa May. In a major speech on how the UK plans to leave the European Union, the Prime Minister said she'll be working with the Welsh Government to ensure that, as powers are repatriated from Brussels, the right powers are passed to Westminster and to Cardiff.

Each of them has been the past site of recurring clashes, and all are primed to explode early in the Trump presidency. Why are we seeing so many potential crises now? Is this period really different from earlier presidential transitions? Its true that the changeover from one presidential administration to another can be a time of global uncertainty, given Americas pivotal importance in world affairs and the natural inclination of rival powers to test the mettle of the countrys new leader. There are, however, other factors that make this moment particularly worrisome, including the changing nature of the world order, the personalities of its key leaders, and an ominous shift in military doctrine. Just as the United States is going through a major political transition, so is the planet at large. The sole-superpower system of the post-Cold War era is finally giving way to a multipolar, if not increasingly fragmented, world in which the United States must share the limelight with other major actors, including China, Russia, India, and Iran.

" Maybe Roth's friends have had important, life-changing experiences after their diagnoses and feel that their pain really is a gift. But I would venture to suggest that, based on the social media responses to the interview, most people don't share that view. The notion of suffering as a gift doesn't make chronic pain patients feel better; it makes abled people feel better. Our pain is not "supernatural." It doesn't embody us with special powers that we can use to heal a divided people. In fact, many women suffering from chronic pain conditions and other disabilities have lamented that we can't be a part of the marches and protests scheduled for January 21st. Once again, women with disabilities will be left out of a movement that should include us and be derided as "slacktivists" because we can't get out and physically march. Chronic pain can be fatal.

They are not given an opportunity to develop their instincts, intuition, or critical thinking. They are not educated to become creative and caring problem solvers willing to contribute to their larger environment.” What I Think is The Deeper Root (Skip this part if you want the solutions now! It’s a unproven theory by me.) For centuries mankind walked the earth in small groups. These small groups suffered and enjoyed nature to its fullest powers, until mankind started to use its brain to find solutions. Diversity within tribes also grew. Healers, leaders, caretakers, mentors, makers arose. Biology also added psychopathic tendencies in about 6% (I think) of the population. In small groups the rest can balance such a person. And they are handy when killing, or setting broken bones of an horrible looking wound needs to happen. That means almost every group of about 25 people, had at best one or two of them, probably of different generations.

You may remember at the end of last year Nicola Sturgeon laid out her preferred options for the Brexit negotiations. She said she wanted the whole of the UK to stay in the single market, but if that was not possible, Scotland should be allowed to stay in the single market and extra powers should be devolved to the Scottish Parliament to make that possible. It did not sound like that was under consideration in what Theresa May had to say today, so what does that mean? Well, Nicola Sturgeon recently ruled at the idea of having another Well, Nicola Sturgeon recently ruled out the idea of having another independence referendum in 2017, but she also stated she is very much not bluffing about having a referendum on Scottish independence at some point if, as she puts it, Scotland is driven off a hard Brexit cliff.

I thank my honourable friend for -- it emphasises the point I was making. We must have powers over imI gos devolved in order to pursue our own distinct policy.

I thank my honourable friend for his intervention and it's a point well made. Agriculture is already devolved area, so as powers are repatriated from Brussels it's essential that they go directly to the Scottish Government. Any power grab from a Westminster Government would be totally unacceptable. We absolutely understand the need for levels of commonality but that is not a justification for a power grab by Westminster. We need a commitment from this Government that the existing allocation of funds will not be tampered with once the convergence is added to the 16.

The right honourable gentleman usually makes excellent contributions, I am afraid that was a poor one, because actually there are many ways in which we will be delighted to improve agricultural policy, so long as his Government don't do a power grab as powers return from Brussels.

I will give way. I am grateful. If we devolve more agricultural policy powers to the Scottish nationalists, they cannot think of a single way on which they could improve policy to help their farmers.

Brexit is a bigger factor in the political discolouration in Northern Ireland at the minute, partly because the Good Friday Agreement had common membership of the EU absolutely Jermaine to it and its institutions. The Secretary of State would need to recognise that any negotiations which over rights are transferred or devolved after the great repale bill will be a political area because nobody in Northern Ireland is going to trust this House with diluting rights before powers are then devolved where any attempt to prove them with be vet I doed by the DUP as we have seen in the past.
