The Scottish Government has now agreed plans with Tory MSP Jamie McGrigor under which his Register of Tartans Bill (see previously Nos 608, 642, 674) will be brought back before the Scottish Parliament and given a fair wind to become an Act within the next year.  The announcement on 11 September 2007 did not say where the register would be located: the city of Inverness is understood to be making a bid to have it, although the register will be based on one already maintained by the Scottish Tartans Authority, based in Crieff (see http://www.tartansauthority.com/).
