Scottish Parliament, Horse Wynd, Edinburgh, EH99 1SP
This event is a fantastic opportunity for any young planner in the first 10 years of their career to learn more about the formation of legislation, to have a tour of the Scottish Parliament, and to meet an MSP.
Nigel Don MSP (Convenor of the Delegated Powers and Law Reform Committee) will introduce the session at the Scottish Parliament, followed by discussion on the scrutiny of primary legislation by Parliament, the drafting of secondary legislation, the differences between Government and Parliament, and the differences between reserved and devolved powers.
