The UK parliament has power to make legislation for the whole of the UK. However, the parliaments and assemblies of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland all have powers to make certain types of legislation specific to their geographical areas. This interactive map and legislation list aims to show the different legislation types that may be applicable to different areas.
