How Westminster works

The UK public elects 650 Members of Parliament (MPs) to represent their interests and concerns in the House of Commons.

In Scotland, issues such as health, education, transport, justice and housing are all devolved to the Scottish Parliament. The UK Parliament in Westminster deals with issues such as immigration, welfare, defence and foreign affairs.
