Scottish Affairs Committee
Land Reform In Scotland: Interim Report
HC 877, Eighth Report of Session 2013-14 - Report, Together with Formal Minutes
- House of Commons - Scottish Affairs Committee
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
The report 'Land Reform In Scotland: Interim Report (HC 877)' concludes that any government which is serious about land reform needs full and clear information on existing land ownership and values made widely available.
Scotland lags behind most comparable European countries in providing such data, and the Committee calls on the Scottish and UK Governments to address this as a priority. Scotland is also behind other countries in terms of the openness and ease of land transactions.
Land reform is an important, neglected and intensely political area of public policy and the Committee is expanding this enquiry more widely than originally envisaged.
Evidence is sought from interested parties on a number of topics including:
the Scottish Government's Land Reform Review Group;
community land ownership; and
opaque and indirect ownership by front companies, trusts and offshore entities.
