Tartan Bill passes

The Scottish Register of Tartans Bill completed its progress through the Scottish Parliament on 9 October 2008.

The Bill is expected to receive Royal Assent before the end of the year, and the Register will come into existence in 2009.  It will be located at Register House at the east end of Princes Street, Edinburgh, and will be administered by the National Archives of Scotland.  The Court of the Lord Lyon will also have an advisory role.
