Land reform review welcomed (25/07/12)
The Leader of The Highland Council, Drew Hendry, has welcomed news that the Scottish Government is to commission a review of land reform in Scotland.
Councillor Hendry said: “This is another very positive move by the Scottish Government to promote the future success of the Highlands and Scotland. The Council’s Programme for the next five years focuses strongly on working together for the economy and working together for strong and safe communities so we are well placed to assist the review team in identifying the radical changes that the First Minister is seeking.”
Councillor Hendry was in Skye to meet with the First Minister ahead of the summer cabinet meeting in Portree on Tuesday.
He said: “I am delighted that the Scottish Government has once again chosen to hold a cabinet meeting in the Highlands, with Skye hosting a meeting for a second time. This demonstrates the Scottish Government’s keen interest in our very special area.”
