Draft Culture (Scotland) Bill
The Scottish Executive has publishit its draft Culture (Scotland) Bill for consultation. This merks an important juncture for airts and culture policy in Scotland, but The Scotsman reports that James Boyle, the heid o the Cultural Commission that the Executive set up tae draw up a vision for Scotland's cultural policy, is no at aw canty with the draft bill. Likewise, The Herald's report and editorial willnae be canty readin for them at Victoria Quay. A wee tait o a contrast wi the warm words on the Executive's ain site.
