Equal Protection

As part of the process for Member’s Bills in the Scottish Parliament I’ve launched a consultation on a Member’s Bill to give children equal protection from assault.

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. I very much hope to hear from as many people as possible.
