R Craig Campbell, Brian Ashcroft (Editor)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

During the 1987 general election, the main political parties, save one, were committed to some form of constitutional change for Scotland. Various degrees and kinds of "self-determination" were offered to the Scottish electorate by those parties. The exception was the Conservative Party. Its Scottish representation in the House of Commons was much reduced as a result of the election, yet it retained its United Kingdom parliamentary majority by a substantial margin. This paper discusses the case of devolution.
