A total of 18 consultation responses were received. The 18 respondents were assigned to one of 4 broad interest groups, for which the underlying classification logic is provided below. A full list of respondents is provided in the Appendix.
Local Authorities - this group comprises the Scottish Councils.
Businesses - this group includes businesses and a range of business and industry associations.
Professional Bodies - this definition covers regulatory practitioners, and their respective institutes and societies, etc.
Individuals - those who have responded in a personal capacity. Can include both members of the public, as well as those who hold some position in an organisation (managers, professors, etc.).
The findings in this report are specific to the consultation exercise and do not necessarily reflect the weight or range of views within the groups as a whole, as the respondents have not been representatively or purposively sampled.
