A bill for more Scottish powers is one thing, making it law is quite another

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

And so it has arrived: draft legislation on further powers for the Scottish parliament, published before Burns Night (January 25), in accordance with the timetable set out in the wake of “The Vow”.

As David Cameron, the prime minister, said in Edinburgh at the announcement:

We said we’d get cross-party agreement by St Andrew’s Day – and we did. We said draft legislation would be published by Burns Night – and here we are, three days before the celebrations start, with those clauses before us.
