To ask the Scottish Government what its response to the report, Kilbrandon Again, which has recommended that the age of criminal responsibility should be raised to 16.

Answered by: Maree Todd 14 December 2018

The Scottish Government will consider the ‘Kilbrandon Again’ report and its recommendations carefully within the context of a range of work underway in this area. In particular we will consider how these recommendations might sit alongside the independent care review and the age of criminal responsibility (Scotland) bill.
