4. UK Government reporting and engagement

4.1. The UK Act is the result of intensive work between the UK Government and the Devolved Administrations as part of the approach set out in the Four-nations Action Plan[1], and in developing this report there has been consideration of how the UK and Scottish Government's approaches to reporting on the UK Act operate alongside each other.

4.2. The UK Government published its first two monthly report[2] on the status of the non-devolved provisions of the UK Act on 29 May 2020.

4.3. The Scottish Government will continue to engage and work with the UK Government and 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.
