Rather belatedly Scots Law News has learned that a Scottish Register of Tartans Bill was introduced in the Scottish Parliament by Jamie McGrigor MSP on 27 September 2006 and had a first preliminary discussion in the Enterprise and Culture Committee on 3 October.  The Bill proposes to establish a Scottish Register of Tartans and a Keeper of that register, but is careful to provide that the right created will not be an intellectual property right (since IPRs are not devolved).  Further details at http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/business/bills/76-tartans/index.htm.
