Lord Stoddart of Swindon – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Cabinet Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Stoddart of Swindon on 2014-06-10.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the event that Scottish voters opt for an independent Scotland, what plans they have in relation to the status of Scottish constituencies at the 2015 general election.

Lord Wallace of Saltaire

If the people of Scotland vote to leave the UK, the UK would continue in its current form and with its existing Parliament, laws, institutions and responsibilities for governing Scotland up to the point that independence were given legal effect, unless the UK Parliament were to pass legislation to change existing arrangements. It would be for the UK Parliament to determine, in the event of a ‘yes’ vote, what, if any changes should be made to existing arrangements.
