Important Announcement

Yesterday (3rd September 2013) the Scottish Government announced their “Empowering Scotland: The Government’s Programme for Scotland 2013-2014”

On page 67 under the title of “Priorities for the Year Ahead”…

“57. The actions which the Scottish Government takes over the year ahead will aim to further empower communities, continue the vital reform and modernization of Scotland’s justice system, and take the action necessary both to protect public safety and encourage people away from offending:

*the Licensing Bill will create an effective licensing regime for air weapons to protect public safety and give local communities greater influence over aspects of alcohol and civic government licensing in order to preserve public order and safety, reduce crime, and promote public health”

We will continue to provide updates, and outline continued action against such measures as soon as possible
