The Scottish Government and Parliament have wide ranging powers over any matter that has not been specifically 'reserved' to the UK parliament, including education, healthcare, Scots law and local government.[138] Following its victory at the 2007 elections the pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP) formed a minority government with its leader, Alex Salmond, becoming First Minister of Scotland.[139] The pro-union parties responded to the electoral success of the SNP by creating a Commission on Scottish Devolution[140] which reported in 2009 and recommended that additional powers should be devolved, including control of half the income tax raised in Scotland.[141] At the 2011 elections the SNP won re-election and achieved an overall majority in the Scottish parliament.[142]skin care beauty tips
