Old Sir

This a useful, brief and concise summary of recent constitutional reforms which students might find useful as a starting-point for more in-depth learning of case studies in order to address assessment objective 2, (evaluation and analysis). However, in the section referring to devolution I would advise that the word states (referring to Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland) is replaced with regions. (At least until after the outcome of the 2014 Scottish referendum.)
