MP welcomes Scotland Bill

Have your say

EDINBURGH West MP Mike Crockart has welcomed the passing of the Scotland Bill, which gives the Scottish Parliament a host of new powers.

The Bill gives Holyrood multi-billion-pound tax and borrowing powers and the ability to set speed limits.

From 2016 the Scottish Parliament will set a Scottish income tax rate to replace part of the existing UK rate.

Mr Crockart said: “It will enable MSPs to bring real change to Scotland.”
