Scotland: Reserved Matters

Volume 698: debated on Thursday 7 February 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Which reserved matters in Schedule 5 to the Scotland Act 1998 are capable of devolution to the Scottish Parliament. [HL1694]

Since 1999 Schedule 5 to the Scotland Act has been amended nine times. The Government will only consider further changes to the devolution settlement which strengthen Scotland's position in the Union.
