2 Acts of the Scottish Parliament
In this section you look at an Act that started life as Private Members’ Bill. This Act has been chosen as it is short and has an accompanying explanatory note.
The starting point with any legislation from the Scottish Parliament is to consider whether it has been passed with the ‘legislative competence’ of the Scottish Parliament. The matter in this Private Members’ Bill is not a reserved one as it does not touch upon a reserved matter such as national security. The Bill relates to land and buildings in the centre of Edinburgh.
