To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the conclusion of the Glasgow Local Authority Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements Significant Case Review that Esther Brown’s murder could not have been prevented.


Our thoughts continue to be with Esther Brown's family, friends and local community.

The Significant Case Review (SCR) process examines the actions and processes of the agencies involved in an individual’s management to ensure all reasonable steps were taken to minimise risk and to capture any learning. The process is independent of government and is designed to ensure the role of all partners in the process is carefully examined. We note this conclusion in this SCR and accept the two recommendations for the Scottish Government.
