Does the Westminster Parliament hold all of the power in the UK? Part 1
This lesson is part 4 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Who runs the United Kingdom?
This is the first of two lessons exploring the devolution of power in the UK. Students learn what devolution means, how power is devolved to the four nations, and what type of issues are devolved and reserved. They consider the pros and cons of devolution and begin to understand that Westminster Parliament does not hold all of the power in the UK.
Students will work towards answering the following questions:
- What is devolution?
- How is power devolved nationally?
- Why is power devolved nationally?
