Schedule 1 — Substitution of Schedule 1 to the Scotland Act 1998
Orders of the Day — Scottish Parliament (Constituencies) Bill
Mr Alex Salmond (Parliamentary Leader (Westminster); Banff and Buchan, Scottish National Party)
These are legitimate questions that the Under-Secretary will be answering shortly. The hon. Gentleman says that he is not prescribing any electoral system, but as I understand the amendments, he wants 118 people elected at constituency level and 11 elected at list level. We can argue the pros and cons of that, but how can he maintain, with this unaccustomed modesty, that he is not prescribing an electoral system in his amendments?
