Public consultation process
Please scrutinise all the proposed amendments and replies before commenting or voting. Short comments are most often read and must not exceed 100 words.You can propose an Amendment at the bottom of this page - please read the guidelines .
Note that the original wording appears again first below and sustains the same comment & voting regime as all other amendment proposals.
Section 1.7. Section 1.7. All persons with a grandparent of Scots nationality have the right to be citizens of Scotland.
Section 1.7. Until independence, there is no Scots nationality. Many grandparents will have died before independence. The term "a grandparent of Scots nationality" should be modified to, probably "a grandparent born in Scotland". Even so, that does not cover people with parents but no grandparents born in Scotland, unless they were themselves born in Scotland or are resident there. Is it intended to exclude such people? The phrase "have the right to be" is also a little vague.
Section 1.7. All persons proving descent from a parent or grandparent born in Scotland have the right, on application, to be granted citizenship of Scotland.
Section 1.7. Being pedantic - this does not follow the amendment guidelines - please resubit with "Section 1.7" at the begining.
Section 1.7. I find it bizarre that amendments should have to be submitted in a different format from that of the original proposal.
