To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to ensure that court mandated contact orders are safe for both the child and parent with residency.

Current status: Answered by Annabelle Ewing on 25 April 2018


We intend to launch a consultation shortly on the review of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995.

This consultation will seek views on a number of issues including who a child should have contact with, how contact should happen and how children and victims of domestic abuse can be protected.
