  1. When and where are responses to the consultation going to be published?
  2. How many responses to the consultation document were received up to and including the closing date Wednesday 12th January 2022? (For the avoidance of doubt, this number should include responses that are deemed to be similar in content but sent from different people/organisations)."

Information about the process for Members’ Bills is available on the Scottish Parliament website at: members-bill.
