Reform Scotland

A Federal Future – Murdo Fraser MSP

This is the latest in a series of individual contributions to the publication, ‘Reforming Scotland’, which aims to set out a possible vision for Scotland’s future which can inform and influence the policy debate in the coming years. The contributions are by people from a range of different backgrounds and political perspectives who have looked at how policy could be reformed across a range of different areas and they represent the views of the authors and not those of Reform Scotland.

Murdo Fraser comments that the vote in the EU referendum showed that there are disparities in the way different parts of the UK act and think, and that this should be a wake-up call to governments and politicians of all parties.  The chapter argues in favour of federalism, the need for a written constitution and the replacement of the House of Lords with a Senate.
