This chapter examines the calls for powers to be devolved to elected bodies in different parts of the United Kingdom, the extent to which powers have been devolved to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the way in which devolution is a process rather than an event, with powers being further devolved over time, and the tensions generated, including in England (‘the English question’) as a result of the West Lothian question and the Barnett formula. It looks as demands for further devolution and for Scottish independence and the problems specific to Northern Ireland.
