"Scotland is already the most powerful devolved nation in the world. It has been given a huge number of powers and that has been a real success," the spokesperson said when asked about Sturgeon's proposals for additional power, adding that the prime minister will "carefully consider" the plans, as quoted by the Independent newspaper.
The spokesperson added that the British government is committed to working together with all devolved administrations, including Scotland, in order to reach a deal which benefits all parties once the United Kingdom leaves the European Union.
