At the time of writing the Scottish Parliament has passed 147 statutes, more than a third of which affect criminal procedure, sentencing, or the substantive criminal law. Such is the extent of these changes that this chapter can do no more than highlight some of the main provisions and offer some critique. The discussion covers criminal procedure, sentencing powers, the substantive criminal law and the parliamentary process.
