My consultation on a Member’s Bill to give children equal protection from assault has now closed!
I launched this consultation as I want Scotland to be among the most progressive, socially just, and equal nations in the world. We all want our children to be happy, healthy and to give them the very best start in life. Yet in 2017, we still afford children less protection from assault than adults. It is an anomaly within Scots law which should now be remedied.
You can read my proposal here. In line with the Scottish Parliament’s Member’s Bill Process, I am now publishing the responses, excluding confidential responses, below.
