Manifesto Commitments To Further Scottish Devolution - What You Need To Know

Manifesto Commitments To Further Scottish Devolution - What You Need To Know

No one can predict who’ll emerge with the most seats in the general election on 7 May – but there’s no doubt that MPs from Scotland could play a pivotal role in forming the next UK Government. 

In the past fortnight the three main Westminster parties (currently!), as well as the SNP, have launched their manifestos.  All four commit to putting in place the recommendations of the Smith Agreement in full, in line with the heads of agreement that they signed back in November.  However, the parties take different approaches to the timing and additional areas that some consider are required.

We therefore take a look in our briefing note at exactly what manifesto proposals have been put forward for implementing further Scottish devolution, as well as other areas that impact, to see where there’s common ground.
