First Minister to be keynote speaker at Community Land conference

Community Land Scotland has announced that First Minister, Alex Salmond, is to be their keynote speaker at their annual conference in Skye in June.

Welcoming the First Minister’s attendance, David Cameron, Chairman of Community Land Scotland said,

“I am delighted the First Minister has accepted our invitation to be our keynote conference speaker. His attendance symbolises the growing recognition within the Scottish Government of community land owning as a key driver in regenerating communities.

The Conference falls shortly after the interim report of the Land Reform Review Group is due to be published and provides the First Minister with an ideal opportunity to both re-affirm the Scottish Government’s commitment to further land reform and perhaps to set out some of the practical steps the Scottish Government will take to advance that cause. We are already looking forward to what he will have to say.”

The Community Land Scotland Annual Conference will take place at Sabhal Mor Ostaig on Skye on the 7th and 8th June 2013.
