A focus on the implications of the no vote in Scotland

On 18th September, a majority of voters answered “No” to the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?”

The referendum campaign, however, produced a promise by the UK government of far-reaching, but not clearly specified, further devolution. Delivery of the devolved powers quickly was a key part of the promise.

The Smith Commission is tasked with bringing forward proposals, with cross party support, and is to report by 30th November.

DWF has a strong Scottish offering and works for a number of major clients with interests in the country. From a business perspective, the issues around currency, regulatory environments and EU membership no longer need to be resolved; but clients can be reassured that DWF understands the changing situation, and can be relied on to offer solutions whatever happens with newly devolved powers.
