When asked about the status of the Scotland Command Paper published today, the Prime Minister?s Official Spokesperson (PMOS) said it was a government paper which outlined the proposals of the 3 principal political parties.

On the timetable for these proposals, the PMOS highlighted 3 key dates, namely:
* the publishing of a command paper by the end of October 2014 linked to Lord Smith?s work
* cross-party agreement by 30 November on the proposals
* draft legislation published by the government by 25 January 2015

When asked who would lead the House of Commons debate on devolution, the PMOS said the government?s most senior representative on these matters ? William Hague ? would open and lead the debate.

With regard to the input of other political parties in the Command Paper, the PMOS said the government very much welcomed representations from other political parties which fed into the work of Lord Smith.
