Labour's Shadow Welsh Secretary has criticised the Secretary of State for taking the dispute over the Welsh Government's first bill to the Supreme Court. Owen Smith said
Now that both of the Wales Office’s legal challenges have been dismissed out of hand, David Jones should pledge not to waste any more time or taxpayers money with further such challenges.
If the only good to come from this complete waste of time, effort and money is that the Welsh Secretary now has a better understanding of where the devolution boundary lies, I can’t help but feel the Welsh public has been left short-changed.
