Declaration and publication

84. I have read the Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment and I am satisfied that, given the available evidence, it represents a reasonable view of the likely costs, benefits and impact of the leading options. I am satisfied that business impact has been and will continue to be assessed with the support of businesses in Scotland.
