Date lodged: 20 September 2017
To ask the Scottish Government how many fatal accident inquiries have been conducted following the death of care-experienced young people.
Answered by: Mark McDonald 2 October 2017
Statistics relating to Fatal Accident Inquiries are held not by the Scottish Government, but by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS). COPFS do not, however, hold information centrally which identifies that a death relates specifically to a care-experienced young person. All determinations are, however, published by the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service (SCTS) and can be viewed individually at the following address: https://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/search-judgments/fatal-accident-inquiries.
