Constituting Scotland

W. Elliot Bulmer

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter is the first of three central chapters in which the SNP’s 2002 constitutional text is examined in detail. This document, although now dated, is still the most detailed statement of the SNP’s constitutional policy ever to have been formally announced by the party. In examining the constitutional draft’s provisions relating to Parliament and the legislative branch, the chapter argues that the general structure of the proposals are sound, but that they lack the institutional and procedural clarity needed in a working constitutional text.
