Engender Submission to the Devolution (Further Powers) Committee Call for Evidence on the UK Government's Scotland Bill

Engender welcomes the Devolution Committee’s focus on the contents of the Scotland Bill (the Bill), and the opportunity to submit our views. We have monitored the progression of the legislation from the publication of the draft clauses and UK government command paper, and due to undue speed, lack of transparency and lack of scrutiny, there have been limited avenues to raise our concerns.


Date of publication: August 2015.
