You are now. :-)

The powers of the Scottish Parliament are defined by the Scotland Act 1998.
The basic principle is that it can legislate for anything that isn't
a "reserved matter" (section 29). Schedule 5 of the Act sets out these
reserved matters. They include "Timescales, time zones and the subject-matter
of the Summer Time Act 1972."
