Response to Proposal for the Licensing of Equine Establishments

Scottish Land & Estates has general concerns that increasing licensing and regulation adds further burden to the rural economy, and therefore looks for good quality evidence of need for such proposals.  If a substantial case had been made for the need for such regulation in relation to equine establishments then we would have been able to assess it on its merits.  We accept that sometimes regulation is necessary.  However, there seems to be very little in the way of evidence to support the proposal and our response very much reflects that we feel the proposal should certainly not be progressed at present or at all unless proper evidence and evaluation of need is provided.
