Responding to the devolution announcement in today's Queen Speech, SNP Westminster Leader Angus Robertson has said the government should offer powers beyond the Smith Commission.
Her Majesty's Speech detailed new powers for Scotland, including the ability to raise 40% of taxes and decide about 60% of public spending.

A legal move to halt the closure of St Bees has been made as part of the ongoing battle to save the 400-year-old school.

The Queen's Speech is an "early test" of the Conservatives' bona fides on devolving more powers to Holyrood, the SNP's Westminster leader has said.
Angus Robertson said there were "shortcomings" on the draft clauses published earlier this year and he insisted the Scotland Bill - which is due to be published on Thursday - must live up to "both the spirit and the letter" of the cross-party deal that was reached.
He said: "As the First Minister agreed with David Cameron, the Scottish Government will also put forward proposals for a transfer of powers beyond Smith for discussion between the Scottish Secretary and the Deputy First Minister - for which half of Scotland's electorate voted. The people of Scotland have spoken and Westminster has a democratic duty to listen."
The MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale has criticised the vision of the Northern Powerhouse described in today's Queen's Speech.
Tim Farron said he welcomed some of the announcements made, including the increase in the personal allowance from £10,600 to £12,500, which he claims will directly benefit 42,500 people in Cumbria.
But the candidate for leader of the Lib Dems warned that Cumbria could be "left behind" as the Conservatives "rush to devolve power" to areas like Greater Manchester.
