Thread Name: BS: PELs in Scotland
Subject: RE: BS: PELs in Scotland
Shambles, you say :"I was probably a bit premature to say the English system will be adopted in Scotland, but my reading of the answer indicates that this must be a strong possibility in the interests of uniformity - it makes little sense to operate two separate systems to (supposedly) achieve the same end."

Well, we've had a separate system up here for years, so I can't see Scotland changing its ways now; especially now we have a devolved parliament. We have our own legal system up here, so if we were interested in uniformity then we'd have to adopt the same laws as England as well, not just the same PEL system. Ain't going to happen anytime soon.
