Constitution Unit Seminar Series

In about  a year’s time Scotland's voters  will make a decision on independence. If  today's  polls are to be believed, they are likely to vote 'No'.  But what would that mean in practice? We already know the status quo is not an option. The Scottish Parliament's powers will be extended in 2016. But all the major parties  are looking at the possibilities of more devolution still. This seminar will look at the options, the constraints, and the implications for the rest of the UK Jim Gallagher is Gwilym Gibbon fellow at Nuffield College Oxford, and a former Director General for devolution in Whitehall. He was Secretary of the Calman Commission on Scottish Devolution, and advises, amongst others, the Labour Party's devolution commission.  With Iain Maclean and Guy Lodge he is the author of Scotland's Choices  (Edinburgh University Press, 2013),  which  sets out the options and the arguments facing the Scottish people.

A light sandwich lunch will be available from 12.30.
