This guide is intended to help officials to develop policy and produce instructions for Bills, and to assist legislative drafters.
A group of legislative drafters from the four drafting offices in the UK is responsible for producing and maintaining the guidance:
- James George (Office of the Legislative Counsel, Cardiff)
- Justin Leslie (Office of the Parliamentary Counsel, London)
- Luke Norbury (Office of the Legislative Counsel, Belfast)
- Gavin Sellar (Parliamentary Counsel Office, Edinburgh).
The group would be delighted to receive any feedback on this guidance, whether on the overall approach adopted or on points of detail. Please send any feedback on this Scottish Government edition of the guidance to Gavin.Sellar@gov.scot.
