2.4 The work of the UK Parliament and getting involved

You should now have an understanding of the UK Parliament’s role in relation to law making and Scotland. As you have seen from Activity 1 this can create complexity as parts of some Acts will apply to Scotland, all of some Acts will apply to Scotland and other Acts will not apply in Scotland at all. This is a piecemeal approach to law making which you consider further in later weeks.
