The Government are committed to taking forward the devolution settlements in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as a key part of its political reform agenda. Senior leadership, including devolution champions, within UK Government Departments have an important role to play in maximising departmental capacity to deal with the issues raised by the devolution settlements. This is part of a wider approach to enhancing the capacity of the UK Government to deal with devolution issues. We keep the approach under review to ensure it continues to meet this objective.
