Regulatory Reform Bill Briefing Stage 3

27th January 2014

LINK provided written and oral evidence at Stage 1 of the Regulatory Reform (Scotland) Bill.

A healthy, functioning and well-protected natural environment is an essential prerequisite for a sustainable economy and for the wellbeing of society.

This briefing outlines LINK’s views on amendments tabled at Stage 3 of the Bill. We focus on the amendments that are relevant to LINK’s priorities.
