Latest UK news: Scotland cannot hold a second referendum on Scottish independence

The High Court has ruled that the Scottish Parliament cannot hold a second referendum.

Britain’s high court judges ruled that Holyrood could not legislate on the matter, agreeing that constitutional matters were reserved to the Westminster Parliament.

This comes after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she wanted the referendum to take place on October 19 next year.

Lord Reed said the court was not taking a political decision on the merits of independence and that it was in the public interest to decide on the matter.

Elsewhere, Rishi Sunak was forced to delay reform planning amid significant opposition from Conservative MPs demanding an end to the mandatory target of 300,000 homes a year.

The prime minister was due to face a major test of his leadership next Monday when MPs were due to vote on the flagship equalization bill.

But nearly 50 backbenchers and former ministers have signed an amendment that prohibits councils from taking housing purposes into account when deciding on planning applications.

The minister will meet the heads of railway unions in order to prevent strikes on trains

The transport secretary will hold talks with rail union bosses this week to urge them to call off strikes aimed at causing “maximum disruption” over Christmas, Labor and Pensions secretary Mel Stride has said.

Calling for “vigorous” involvement from the RMT union, Mr Stride told TalkTV: “Secretary of State [Mark Harper] he’s actually meeting railroad union leaders later this week, so that dialogue is taking place.”

He said the consequences of the strikes announced by the RMT in December and January would be “quite serious” and “profound” – saying they could disrupt medical appointments as well as “family gatherings” held over the festive period.

The Tories have been preparing for a mass exodus of MPs as the December deadline approaches

Senior backbencher William Wragg and former Secretary of Work and Pensions Chloe Smith were the last to announce that they would not stand for re-election as MP at the next election.

MPs have been given a deadline of 5 December for MPs to tell Tory headquarters (CCHQ) whether they plan to stand in the 2024 election, Independent understands.

There are predictions that as many as 80 Tory MPs could decide to leave, with many facing a tough battle to keep their seats as a resurgent Labor tops the polls.

Keir Starmer’s immigration policy straight from UKIP’s manifesto, says Nigel Farage

Mr Farage said Labor is now “to the right of the Conservatives on immigration” after Sir Keir said the UK must end its “immigration dependency”.

The Labor leader addressed business bosses in a speech on Tuesday morning and criticized the use of “cheap labour”.

He told his listeners at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) that companies should “start investing more in training workers who are already here”.

Speaking after Sir Keir’s speech, Farage criticized the Tories and said they had “made it clear that they would continue with massive, large-scale legal immigration”.

Speaking of the upcoming rail strikes, RMT general secretary Mick Lynch said the union needed to respond to “broken promises” from senior officials.

“There’s never a right time to strike,” Lynch said. “We don’t want to go on strike and have been very careful and listened to public opinion over the last few months.

“But we have to end it and bring it to an end.

“Workers say we cannot tolerate the prescription we have been given by the government.”
