MSPs welcome planned changes to crofting legislation

A report by a committee of MSPs has broadly welcomed the Scottish government's proposed changes to crofting legislation.

The rural affairs and environment committee has recommended the Crofting Reform Bill should now begin its passage through parliament.

Proposed new powers to tackle neglected croft land have been welcomed.

However, they have also called for action to improve rural economies in general.
