The Scottish Affairs Committee of the UK Parliament has been investigating matters land law reform. This process is operating in tandem with the separate Land Reform Review Group process, originated by the Scottish Government, to which I am an adviser. (Responses to the LRRG’s call for evidence are available here.)
The deadline for responses to the Scottish Affairs Committee Inquiry into Land Reform in Scotland
is was 30 September 2013 (see clarification below). I snuck my thoughts in just before the deadline and you can access my response here. I restricted my comments to matters which are not really for Holyrood to deal with, either in terms of the devolution settlement (e.g. matters relating to company/business law) or in terms of general sensibility (e.g. a workable tax system across the UK). If you have anything to add, why not let the Scottish Affairs Committee know your thoughts?
After uploading my post, Andy Wightman contacted me to let me know the deadline has been extended to 28 October. I have updated the blog accordingly.
