Question reference: S6W-24017

  • Asked by: Rachael Hamilton, MSP for Ettrick, Roxburgh and Berwickshire, Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party
  • Date lodged: 19 December 2023
  • Current status: Answered by Mairi Gougeon on 22 December 2023


To ask the Scottish Government when it anticipates that the proposed Land Reform Bill will be introduced to the Scottish Parliament. 


As I noted in my response to a question from Jackie Dunbar MSP on 12 December, the Scottish Government remains committed to introducing Land Reform legislation to further improve transparency of land ownership, help ensure large scale land holdings deliver in the public interest, and empower communities by providing more opportunities to own land and have more say in how land in their area is used.

To allow time for this further consideration and ensure we get the proposals right for introduction, we are planning a slight delay to the introduction of the Bill but it remains a Programme for Government commitment for 2023-24.
