Bankruptcy and Diligence (Scotland) Bill: island communities impact assessment - screening

Island communities impact assessment (ICIA) screening carried out in relation to the Bankruptcy and Diligence (Scotland) Bill.

Step Four – Assessment

Does your assessment identify any unique impacts on island communities?

58. No. We do not anticipate that any impact on island communities will be different from the impact of communities on the mainland.

59. The potential impacts outlined in this document are not unique to island communities and may also be faced by rural communities across mainland Scotland, nor have they been raised significantly through consultation.

Does your assessment identify any potential barriers or wider impacts?

60. We do not consider there to be any potential barriers.

How will you address these?

61. Given the foregoing, in our opinion, we do not consider that this Bill will have an effect on an island community which is significantly different from its effect on other communities (including other island communities).
