To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to update its Strategy for Justice in Scotland, which was published in 2012.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 11 July 2017
The Justice Vision (Bib Number 58889) sets out a vision and priorities for a safe, just and resilient Scotland. It has been developed in close collaboration with the Justice Board and partners and is a collective commitment to seven key priorities. It describes the justice portfolio’s recent successes and current and emerging challenges, based on the available evidence. The Delivery Plan (Bib Number 58890) sets out key actions for 17-18 to help progress the seven priorities.
This Delivery Plan will be updated annually.
