The UK Government has engaged regularly with the Scottish Government concerning the legislation to overturn the wrongful convictions of postmasters, including at the Inter-Ministerial Group for Justice on 25 January and a regular official-level working group. I discussed the UK Government's approach to overturning convictions with the Scottish Government's Cabinet Secretary for Justice on 22 February. The UK Government will continue to work closely with the Scottish Government to enable them to progress their own approach for overturning convictions in their legal jurisdiction.
