This Briefing analyses the initial experience of coalition government in Scotland and Wales. Scotland has been ruled by a coalition administration since the first devolution elections in 1999; Wales experienced a coalition for over half the first term of the National Assembly. It is thus a good time to review the early experience of power-sharing government: to explore how the coalition arrangements worked, what adaptations have been made to these arrangements, and what further reforms might be necessary in future.
