Solicitors at Inksters have lodged submissions on the Crofting (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill with the Scottish Parliament.
Brian Inkster has submitted his views on the Bill in three parts. These have been published on this blog as five separate blog posts:-
Submissions (Part 1): A sledge hammer to crack a nut
Submissions (Part 2): An alternative Crofting (Amendment) (Scotland) Bill
Submissions (Part 3): Crofting is not a perfect word + The Crofting Law Hydra + Are owner-occupier crofters a sub-set of owner-occupiers?
Eilidh Ross has also submitted her views on the Bill: The Crofters (Scotland) Act 1993 is a mess
Since the deadline for providing submissions expired another decrofting problem has reared its head. Brian Inkster has blogged about it: Owners of croft land who are aliens to the Crofting Commission.
The Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee are due to produce their Report on the Bill this forthcoming week. It is to be hoped that they take on board the Inksters’ submissions and the latest decrofting problem when compiling that Report.
