HC Deb 25 October 1976 vol 918 cc27-8W
Mr. Rifkind

asked the Secretary of State for Transport which matters his Department will be responsible for in England which it will not also be responsible for in Scotland after the implementation of the Government's devolution proposals; and which of these areas are presently the responsibility of the Scottish Office so far as they affect Scotland.

Mr. William Rodgers

The matter referred to in the first part of the hon. Member's Question are those listed in paragraph 135 of Cmnd. 6348, except for certain functions in relation, for example, to shipping, aviation and inland waterways which in England are the responsibility of other Departments. The second part is a matter for the Secretary of State for Scotland.
