UK: Scotland: the Scottish Law Commission's tenth programme of law reform

The Scottish Law Commission launched its tenth programme of law reform yesterday: see here or here (pdf). The Commission states that it expects to complete its project on the law of contract in the light of the Draft Common Frame of Reference in the spring of this year. A final report and Bill will be published covering topics on which the Commission has already consulted, including remedies for breach of contract, penalty clauses and contract interpretation. Earlier reports under this project have resulted in Acts of the Scottish Parliament: the Legal Writings (Counterparts and Delivery) (Scotland) Act 2015 and the Contract (Third Party Rights) (Scotland) Act 2017.
