New Legislative Programme for Scotland

The Scottish Government has announced its legislative programme for the coming year. Here it is in full:

  • EDUCATION (ADDITIONAL SUPPORT FOR LEARNING) (AMENDMENT) (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • ARBITRATION (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • BUDGET (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • CHILDREN’S HEARINGS (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • SCOTTISH CLIMATE CHANGE BILL;
  • COUNCIL TAX ABOLITION (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND LICENSING (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • FLOOD RISK MANAGEMENT (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • HEALTH (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • LEGISLATIVE REFORM (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • LEGAL PROFESSION (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • PUBLIC SERVICES REFORM (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • SCOTTISH MARINE BILL;
  • SAFEGUARDING RURAL SCHOOLS (SCOTLAND) BILL;
  • SCOTTISH CLIMATE CHANGE BILL; and
  • SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT ELECTIONS BILL.

And the analysis? Well a grand total of 12 “(Scotland)” Bills to only 4 “Scottish” Bills. A clear majority for the brackets. I just hope that in their enthusiasm to abolish Council Tax, the Parliament forgets to enact an alternative!
