Following the large votes in support of the creation of a Scottish Parliament with tax raising powers in the referendum held in September 1997, the Parliament is expected to be established in 1999. It will have important implications for the pattern of regional governance in the UK and the conduct of regional and industrial policy. This book will considers the economic powers of the Parliament, the means by which it will be financed and the effect of tax varying powers. It discusses relations between the Parliament and the European Union, the development agencies in Scotland and Scottish local government. The implications of the Scottish Parliament for the planning process and urban regeneration are analysed. Finally, the book considers the local economic impact of the Scottish Parliament on the city of Edinburgh.
