3% – 59% 1997 Source: Data compiled from Bogdanor, 2001. In the following sections the development of the devolution process in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, and its characteristics will be analysed. Devolution in Northern Ireland The Home Rule experience Between 1921 and 1972 Northern Ireland experienced a form of devolution, as the six counties of Ulster which remained within the UK had Home Rule. This form of devolution, however, cannot be compared easily with the current form for two main reasons.
During the 1990s, an organised campaign for devolution emerged, but there was not oﬃcial support from the political parties, and the campaigners did not have a strong public image or signiﬁcant ﬁnancial resources. The Campaign for a Welsh Assembly was established in 1987, advocating the economic beneﬁts of a potential assembly. Its work continued in the 1990s. In 1993 it changed its name to The Parliament for Wales Campaign, trying to establish a convention similar to the one established in Scotland at that time, bringing together members of the diﬀerent political parties in favour of a directly elected assembly.
However, the Bill proposed an asymmetric form of devolution for Wales. While in Scotland the devolved assembly was to be given some executive powers over devolved Scottish Oﬃce responsibilities, in Wales the Bill established only local-government style committees. However, there was little support for devolution with only one in four voting in favour in the referendum (O’Neill, 2000: 73; McAllister, 1999: 636). During the 1980s the debate on home rule echoed that in Scotland, concessions towards the recognition of a Welsh identity were made through the creation of the Welsh Language Board, and the Welsh Development Agency.
