The UK Climate Change Bill was introduced to the House of Lords on 14 November 2007. The Bill contains provisions which fall within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament and which therefore require the Scottish Parliament to consent to their being considered by the UK Parliament. The Scottish Government has lodged a Legislative Consent Memorandum (LCM) for scrutiny by the Parliament. This briefing outlines the background to the Bill, and considers which aspects have implications for Scotland. This Briefing is not intended to reproduce the information available in the Legislative Consent Memorandum.
