UNISON Scotland wants to commend the consultation process which has taken place in the period since the last Draft Bill was published for consultation. We has been fully involved in the consultation carried out by the Scottish Government, by making written submissions, meeting with the Minister, Adam Ingram, meeting with Kit Wyeth, one of the Civil Servants attached to the CH Bill Team, and by participating in the Virtual Bill Group that was set up to engage with stakeholders and share information relating to the formulation of the Bill.
UNISON’s main concern throughout all of our discussions on the Bill has been to ensure that the unique nature of the Children’s Hearings system was upheld. …. https://unison-scotland.org/library/ChildrensHearingsBillEdLLC.pdf
