This chapter shows how the interest groups were played differently in the 1980s and beyond than in the 1970s, especially in relation to the European dimension. It reveals that the Church of Scotland had been isolated in the 1970s due to being both pro-devolution and pro-EU. It determines that the key change in interest groups during this period was on the STUC, which was one of the key actors in the effort to Europeanise Scottish devolution in the 1990s. This chapter also discusses other important changes that occurred between the 1970s and 1990s, which eventually helped increase the influence of the interest groups on the politics of self-government.
