An opinion has been issued in relation to an appeal case in the Inner House of the Court of Session.
The SLCC respects what is said in the opinion and welcomes the clarity from the court on these matters. We will swiftly implement the changes required in line with this decision.
The SLCC aims to ensure its communications to all complaint parties are clear and in plain English. Wherever possible we avoid using legal terminology, where evidence suggests that might not be understood by the general public. However, we accept the court’s view on this matter and will consider how best to implement the required changes to our communications.
The Court's opinion is on the Scottish Courts and Tribunals website.
