The Smith Commission

There will be an opportunity to ‘have your say’ on a dedicated page on the Commission’s website from Monday 13 October where you can put your ideas in directly.

The terms of reference for the Commission are:

To convene cross-party talks and facilitate an inclusive engagement process across Scotland to produce, by 30 November 2014, Heads of Agreement with recommendations for further devolution of powers to the Scottish Parliament. This process will be informed by a Command Paper, to be published by 31 October and will result in the publication of draft clauses by 25 January. The recommendations will deliver more financial, welfare and taxation powers, strengthening the Scottish Parliament within the United Kingdom.
