This am @AileenMcHarg joined @BBCRadioScot to discuss the UK Government's #internalmarket white paper to weigh in on the power grab / power surge debate. Lots of questions remain about how the internal market might operate, says Aileen. Will there be possibilities for the devolved parliaments to override these cross-cutting internal market constraints? How will it operate? How will it be enforced?
