Intergovernmental relations: 25 years since the Scotland Act 1998


2023 marks the 25th anniversary of the passing of the Scotland Act 1998.

To mark this milestone, the Committee is conducting an inquiry to examine how intergovernmental relations have developed since the establishment of the Scottish Executive and Parliament and how processes for managing intergovernmental relations evolved to respond to various political developments since 1999.

The inquiry will also be considering how effectively the new intergovernmental relations framework has been operating, and has been implemented, since its introduction following in January 2022 following a review.

Read our call for evidence for more detail about the inquiry and how to contribute your views.
