Short time to give sector views on further devolution

The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations has agreed to provide the Smith Commission, which is looking into devolving more powers to the Scottish Parliament, with initial views from across the third sector about what could make a real difference to the lives of people and communities.

Lord Smith of Kelvin is collating findings from across Scottish public life to form the basis of proposed legislation in January. As reported by Third Force News, the sector has been given just two weeks to formulate its ideas. Third Force News or go to SCVO news item for how to contribute.
