JUST a small glass of wine or a pint of beer.
This could be the tough new drink-drive limit facing motorists in Scotland within months as Westminster gets set to approve “the largest-ever transfer of powers to Holyrood”.
The Scotland Bill is expected to receive final approval by the UK Parliament and Royal Assent next week following the unanimous support of the Scottish Parliament.
And UK ministers said the power to set tougher rules, which could include slashing the drink-drive limit, should be devolved to Holyrood in time for summer.
The SNP, which supports calls to cut the limit in a bid to save lives, will then be able to change the law.
If the limit is cut, as is expected, motorists could lose their licence if they drive after drinking more than one small glass of wine.
Under the new powers, MSPs will also be able to ban air guns and lower speed limits.
Scotland Office Minister David Mundell said MPs are expected to rubber-stamp the handover within days and the transfer of power could take as little as two months.
The SNP administration had demanded devolution of corporation tax, excise duties, broadcasting rights, greater borrowing powers, the Crown Estate and European representation.
Despite most of their demands being rejected by Westminster, the SNP supported the Bill on the grounds that it “does no harm to Scottish interests”.
Multi-billion pound tax and borrowing powers will now start to be phased in from 2013 onwards when new capital borrowing powers take effect.
A Scottish Government spokesman said: “The Scottish Government has been seeking these and other powers for Scotland since 2007.
“Our long-standing position on drink driving is clear.
“Hundreds of drivers each year ignore the risks and put lives in danger, which is why we want to see the current drink drive limit reduced from 80 mg per 100 ml of blood to 50 mg per 100 ml blood.”
