Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The "Smith Commission Survey: Devolution Preferences in Scotland, England and Wales" was conducted in the context of the Smith Commission that studied and proposed further devolution of powers to the Scottish Parliament after the No vote in the Scottish independence referendum. The survey studies and assesses people's attitudes to the UK territorial constitution and their preferences regarding the powers that the different jurisdictions and levels of government should be granted. Within Scotland it also examines reactions to the referendum and knowledge of the Smith Commission.
