Question

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S6T-00179 by Keith Brown on 21 September 2021, how many of the 18 recommendations are being or have been implemented.

Current status: Answered by Keith Brown on 16 November 2021


Answer

The Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service received a response to 17 of the 18 recommendations (determinations) made by the Sheriff, within 8 weeks of publication of the determination, as per the statutory requirement.

The implementation of any recommendations made by the Sheriff is primarily the responsibility of the respective organisation at which the recommendation was aimed.

In 1 of the 18 determinations, no response was received by the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service within the 8 week statutory period. The Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service published a notice under Section 28(7) of the 2016 Act to this end.
