  • Outlines the policy rationale behind each draft Regulation; and
  • Outlines key consultation questions upon which the Scottish Government would like to hear your views.

Following the completion of consultation on both sets of draft Regulations an analysis of written responses will be published. Scottish Ministers and officials will continue to work collaboratively with key stakeholders to consider the consultation responses.
