To ask the Scottish Government how many responses it received to its recent consultation, Barclay Implementation, and when it expects to publish its analysis of them.
Answered by: Kate Forbes 14 November 2018
148 responses were submitted to the Scottish Government in respect of "Barclay Implementation: A consultation on non-domestic rates reform". Published responses (i.e. where respondents gave consent to their response being published) can be found on the Scottish Government Consultation Hub . A contract appointing an external contractor to undertake an analysis of all the responses received has now been awarded. It is anticipated that an analysis report will be published on the Scottish Government website prior to the introduction of the draft NDR (Scotland) Bill to the Scottish Parliament.
