Lyndi-loo BS: Scotch People running the country (49) RE: BS: Scotch People running the country 27 Jan 03


I think our original guest is slightly confused. Under devolution, matters of education and various other things were devolved to a Scottish parliament (the Education and Legal systems in Scotland have always been different anyway). The Scottish parliament commissioned a committee header by Andrew Cubie to investigate how higher education should be funded. The result was no upfront fees, but fees to be repaid when the graduate earnes in excess of 10000 pa. The Scottish parliament is charged to carry out the will of the Scottish people which is why it has passed othere legislation that does not apply to the rest of the UK e.g. paersonal care for the elderly to be free. As for the West Lothian question, we in Scotland have absolutely no objection to an English Parliament passing legislation which will apply in England only, but where there are reserved areas for the westminster paliament which affect the whole of the UK then it is only right that we have a say (ditto for Northern Ireland and Wales)
