The Chair noted that the meeting had been duly convened and declared the meeting open.
PT proceeded with the meeting by requesting that the minutes of the meeting held on
24th January 2022 be proposed as a true and accurate record of the discussions that took place.
PT gave an overview on the status, and advised the Board that Part 2 of the consultation
closed Thursday, 12 May and that the Scottish Government will now be reviewing all the
PT added that hopefully they will provide a set of regulations and proposal before the summer
and potentially have the revised code in place by the end of the year.
AT commented that the Scottish Government published the 1st consultation, but it did not
really give any update to MRO or the guest beer provisions.
MC said the PGB financial year runs from 1st August and has proposed to include
all the Scottish pubs until the bill comes in.
PT commented that interviews have been held for a Scottish Pubs Code Adjudicator.
MC advised that this should remain as an agenda point, there is a need to set a timeframe for people to continue to use PICAS and a date will need to be set. (In E&W we allowed 3 months)
with regards to PIRRS we would approach the companies subject to the Scottish Pubs Code to agree as in E & W that they are happy to continue to allow Tied Tenants to go to PIRRS.
