SB 09-21 Scottish Local Government (Elections) Bill

The Scottish Government introduced the Scottish Local Government (Elections) Bill in the Parliament on 3 February 2009. Under the provisions of the Scottish Local Government (Elections) Act 2002, Scottish Parliament and local government elections are held on the same day. The Bill seeks to decouple these elections.  It also proposes to give Scottish Ministers a power to make regulations for the publication of electoral data to polling station level.
