To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S4W-25965 by Michael Matheson on 17 June 2015, on which islands and in which remote rural areas (a) it considers that there is a problem of availability of JPs to undertake affidavit administration and (b) there is a resident notary public.


Answered by Michael Matheson (15/07/2015):

A current list of the JP Courts can be found at:

https://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/the-courts/jp-court/about-jp-courts.

Members of the public are asked to make an appointment through the administration office for a JP court where signing can be arranged.

It is for a solicitor (who may be a notary public) to decide where to set up in private practice. The majority of solicitors are notary publics. I attach a note provided by the Law Society of Scotland showing the number of notary publics by area throughout Scotland. The Law Society’s website provides a link to the EU find-a-notary website http://www.lawscot.org.uk/members/notaries/.
