Compares the constitutional arrangements for the Spanish autonomous regions with the arrangements for Scotland, focusing on how the Member State can comply with its responsibility to ensure that EC law is implemented throughout its territory. Contrasts the Spanish Constitution with the Scotland Act 1998, reviewing the national government's powers to legislate for the devolved region or set minimum standards for devolved legislation, the national courts' powers to review the competence of devolved legislation, and the arrangements for cooperation between the national and subnational governments. Considers the reforms which Spain and the UK should undertake to provide better for the implementation of Community law.
