Education Debate and Named Person Policy

Thank you to Parliament T.V for coverage of the Education Debate on the 8th June which focussed on the issue of the Named Person policy.

I have attached a copy of the link to my speech.


Education Debate – Scottish Parliament: 8th June 2016

That the Parliament, irrespective of whether or not individual MSPs support the principle of the Named Person policy, recognises the extent of concerns being expressed by many professionals who believe that there are practical difficulties ahead in relation to the delivery of a universal provision of Named Persons in August 2016; notes that there is confusion among parents about whether engagement with their child’s Named Person is compulsory, and believes that, in light of these significant concerns, there is an urgent need to pause the implementation of the policy and debate whether or not the policy in its current form is workable in the best interests of Scotland’s young people.
