From the Independent on Sunday: Ministers are threatening to take unprecedented steps under the devolution agreements with Scotland and Wales to ensure that they accept GM crops. The Welsh and Scottish administrations have to be "brought on board" because by law no GM crop can be grown anywhere in the UK unless there is a joint agreement by all the governments of the United Kingdom. The so-called devolved administrations are much more firmly opposed to GM crops (as are the general public across Britain, but who cares about them?) than are the MPs in Westminster. Environmental groups and the devolved assemblies are crying foul.
