Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution (7 Sep 2004)

Dr Lynda Clark: The obligations will always technically be on the state, which is, of course, the United Kingdom, but implementation can be tackled in various ways, as has been done through orders.

Oral Answers to Questions — Advocate-General for Scotland: Devolution (29 Jun 2004)
