Have your say on further powers for Scotland – submit your ideas to the Smith Commission
During the referendum campaign Gordon Brown promised home rule and to move ‘as close to a federal state as is possible,’ which was fully endorsed by the Westminster parties in a solemn vow on further powers for the Scottish Parliament following a No vote.
After the referendum returned a No vote, the Smith Commission was established to make recommendations on which additional powers should be devolved to the Scottish Parliament.
The Commission, chaired by Lord Smith of Kelvin, is seeking views from across political parties, Scottish civic society and the public on further powers for the Scottish Parliament.
After the huge public engagement with the referendum here in Glasgow, it is vital that people have their say on what extra powers they want to see devolved to Scotland.
You can put forward your ideas and views to the Smith Commission about what further powers should be devolved to Scotland, to ensure the Commission has meaningful input from the public as well as politicians.
There is a tight deadline of 5pm on Friday 31st October to submit your views, however this is a vital opportunity to have your say about additional powers for Scotland.
You can send your submission, or queries about submissions, to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can write to The Smith Commission, 7th Floor, 144 Morrison Street, EH3 8EX
