Review of the status, operation and continuing necessity of devolved provisions in the UK Act is part of the Scottish Government’s two-monthly reporting to the Scottish Parliament, which provides the Parliament with an opportunity to scrutinise the judgements which have been made in the operation, and assessment of the continued necessity of those provisions.

The Scottish Government continues to engage and work with the UK Government and the other Devolved Administrations on the implementation and operation of the UK Act and to help ensure respective reporting arrangements operate successfully and appropriately alongside each other, to support robust and effective scrutiny of the legislation.
