Our powers

Have your say

It does not surprise me that half of Scots believe a No vote will result in Holyrood getting more powers. What does surprise me is that anybody believes the enhanced powers being suggested will be of any great benefit to Scotland.

The Labour Party has already said Holyrood will not be given additional powers that could be used to enable Scotland to be better off than other UK regions.

The additional powers that our parliament needs to improve our economy and quality of life in Scotland will never be offered by Westminster, and it would be foolish to think otherwise. Only by playing our part in the world as a nation can we ever achieve this.
