The Devolution Act dispersed powers to the Scottish Parliament and the Welsh Assembly, giving them greater powers for their individual states. As well as that it created a London mayor. Parliament still remains the sovereign body but such powers could be returned by Parliament however this is very unlikely and would be deeply shunned upon.

HRA incorporated EU law into UK law which gave the HRA greater precedent and UK citizens greater protection. EU law is the only source/law that undermines parliamentary sovereignty. The act made it easier for UK citizens to bring issues to court as they're no longer required to go to the courts in Strasbourg, rather, they can now go to the Supreme Court which was brought about under the Constitutional Reform Act 2005.

Thank you! is there anything else i could say for the devolution Act? or could it be linked to the referendum on abortion or is that not applicable?

Thanks for the help again

If your attempting to refer to the abortion referendum I’d advise to concede on that idea, the referendum was of significant importance to Ireland but not Northern Ireland
