Jacobites to be cleared?

Here's a story from the National Post in Toronto concerning the petition of Peter Drummon-Murray to have the names cleared of various Jacobites attainted by an Act of Parliament following the Forty Five.

Tory MSP Jamie McGrigor has tabled a motion calling on the Scottish Parliament to back a petition which demands the Westminster Parliament overturn the Acts of Attainder and clear the names of the families in question.
