6.1 Reserved and devolved matters

As stated earlier, the UK Parliament will legislate on reserved matters and occasionally also on devolved matters, with the agreement of the Scottish Parliament. This section looks at the law-making process at Westminster. It is a very different process to that in the Scottish Parliament, and involves both Houses of the Westminster Parliament.

Scientists are always concerned with the reliability and precision of their data, and this is the prime reason for them to repeat measurements many times. Consider the photograph shown in Figure 6, which is the result of X-ray diffraction (see Box 5). To determine the atomic structure of the substance that produced this pattern, it would be necessary to measure the diameters of the fuzzy rings. At one time, this would probably have been done with an instrument called a travelling microscope;

By: JCB Brachet's cleft separates the ectoderm and mesoderm of early Xenopus and zebrafish embryos.
