In a letter to Conservative ministers she called for more talks, saying the Scottish government had “a number of concerns about the proposals”.

Last week MPs staged an emergency debate to discuss the plans reports BBC.

The government later promised a redraft and postponed a Commons vote on the issue until at least September.

In her letter to Scottish Secretary David Mundell, Mrs Sturgeon said: “There is a clear Scottish interest in English votes for English laws (Evel) because of the impact it will have, and the proposals, as they currently stand, are unacceptable.”
