Ongoing policy development

174 There are a number of policy proposals which require further development. The Scottish Government will continue to work with various stakeholders to support the development of these subjects, and to act as a sounding board for other proposals. There are various channels for this, including the National Cremation Committee established in response to the Infant Cremation Committee's recommendations, as well as various professional and industry bodies. This process will continue until the Bill is introduced into the Scottish Parliament.
