§ Mr. McLeish
The Scottish Law Commission has been asked to consider the law on leasehold casualties and has published a discussion paper. It aims to report by March 1998. The Commission will also issue a report on the law of the tenement later this year, and expects to make recommendations and issue its report on the abolition of the feudal system by the end of 1999. It will consider wider aspects of the law of leasehold tenure thereafter. We will consider the options for legislation in these areas as soon as possible after the Commission's reports are received.
