Where There's a Will There's a Way

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, highlighted this week the importance of the Succession (Scotland) Bill. The provisions in the Bill will make the relevant parts of the law clearer, fairer and more consistent.

In Thursday's debate entitled: Succession (Scotland) Bill, Mr Stevenson talked about the importance of the Bill as it will at some point affect us all, he said:

“Given that we will all die, I am sure that the bill will ultimately touch us all in the disposal of our assets or debts. Even those who have no assets and no debts cannot be assured that they will escape the bill’s provisions.”

Mr Stevenson went onto say that the future government will have to continue work on the Succession Bill, He said:

“The complexity of and lack of agreement on some succession issues are the reasons why a future Government will have to grasp the nettle of a much more wide-ranging restatement and reform”

A very simple and perfectly proper will (originally hand written and signed)
