Details

In September 2014, the people of Scotland voted to remain part of a United Kingdom with a united future and the Prime Minister invited Lord Smith of Kelvin to oversee and deliver cross-party agreement on the shape of improved and enhanced devolution for Scotland.

On 27 November 2014 Lord Smith delivered an agreement reached unanimously between all 5 main Scottish political parties on more powers for the Scottish Parliament.

The draft clauses published in this document are the next stage in delivering that commitment and this draft legislation shows how the measures included in the agreement would look in law.
