EasyReadThe Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill was introduced to the Scottish Parliament on 11 June 2014, alongside a number of accompanying documents which included a Policy Memorandum. The Government has produced an Easy Read version of the Policy Memorandum to ensure that as many people as possible can understand the Bill.

People can still ask for changes to the Bill while the Scottish Parliament is looking at it. This can be done by writing to the Local Government and Regeneration Committee who will be looking carefully at what is in the Bill. The closing date is Friday 5 September 2014 Comments should be no more than eight pages long in a Word Document. These should be emailed, if possible to: communityempowermentbill@scottish.parliament.uk
