This group of amendments tidies up the provisions on the registration of common grazings.

Amendment 53 mirrors the section that the bill inserts into the 1993 act that makes provision about the effect of registration in the crofting register. Amendment 56 makes consequential changes to avoid duplication in new section 51B of the 1993 act.

Amendment 116 restricts the information that is to be included in the registration schedule of a common grazing to avoid duplication of information in the register. Amendments 117 and 118 are consequential to it.

Amendment 119 removes the requirement for information about a landlord or landowner of a croft to be entered into the common grazing registration schedule.

Amendment 120 mirrors the drafting changes that amendment 32 made to section 11.

Now that everybody is absolutely clear on that, I move amendment 53.

Amendment 53 agreed to.

Amendment 54 moved—[Roseanna Cunningham]—and agreed to.

Amendment 166 not moved.
