Local MP Michael Moore is welcoming the publication today of Draft Clauses which he believes will deliver Home Rule for Scotland in line with the Smith Commission’s proposals.
He believes the plans will deliver on the 'vow' made jointly by the Conservative Party, the Labour Party, and the Liberal Democrats during the Scottish referendum.
"I am extremely pleased to see the Craft Clauses published today which will deepen devolution in Scotland and deliver on the ‘vow’ made by the three main UK-wide parties before the referendum."
Today, Prime Minister David Cameron will visit the Scottish Borders.
The visit will follow a meeting with the First Minister in Edinburgh, in which he is expected to lay out plans for the increased devolution of powers to Scotland.
He claims these plans will transform Holyrood into "one of the most powerful devolved parliaments in the world".
It is the first time the Prime Minister has visited the Borders region since the referendum.

David Cameron has been speaking to ITV Border's Scotland Political Editor Peter MacMahon at the Scottish Conservative Party conference.
When asked whether there would be border controls between Scotland and England this was Mr Cameron's response.
David Cameron has said his promise to make devolution work better for Scotland is not a consolation prize for Alex Salmond if the nation votes to stay as part of the UK.
Mr Cameron was addressing his Scottish party members at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

David Cameron told the Scottish Conservative Party conference in Edinburgh that a 'no vote' can mean further devolution and more power to the Scottish people.
"Let me be absolutely clear: a vote for 'no' is not a vote for 'no change'.
"We are committed to making devolution work better still.
"Not because we want to give Alex Salmond a consolation prize if Scotland votes No, but because it's the right thing to do.
"Giving the Scottish Parliament greater responsibility for raising more of the money it spends.
"So here's the re-cap: vote yes, that is total separation.
"Vote no, that can mean further devolution more power to the Scottish people and their Parliament, but with the crucial insurance policy that comes with being part of the UK."
