Overview on Scottish devolution powers

The Scottish Parliament has issued a new Guide to Devolution that they suggest may be useful to voluntary organisations and others. This provides a short history to date as well as an overview of the new powers under the Scotland Bill 2015-16. It also explains the position on welfare issues, with a graph on expenditure on welfare benefits after further devolution.
