To ask the Scottish Government by what date it will introduce the mandatory public register of land and how the register will be implemented.

Answered by: Keith Brown 8 September 2016

The Scottish Government has no plans to introduce a mandatory requirement to complete the land register. In May 2014, Scottish Ministers invited the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland to complete the land register by 2024 and committed to registering all public land by 2019.
