To ask the Scottish Government when it will provide guidance in relation to the Apologies (Scotland) Act 2016.
Answered by: Annabelle Ewing 4 September 2017
The Scottish Government is working with the InterAction Action Plan Review Group to ensure survivors of historical childhood abuse are able to benefit as much as possible from the different strands of the Action Plan on Justice for Victims of Historic Abuse of Children in Care. This includes consideration of how information about the Apologies (Scotland) Act 2016 and its benefits can best be communicated.
