SNP: devolution winners

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The SNP’s main objective is to achieve Scottish independence. How to achieve this end has, however, existed as a long-running debate within the party, and the interaction between this debate and the prospect of a Scottish Parliament has had a major influence on this. The SNP is now a party of government and having a consistent and influential parliamentary presence has shaped both it and the Parliament within which it operates. This chapter explores the relationship between the SNP and the Scottish Parliament.
