To ask the Scottish Government what its plans are for taking forward the development of a Hate Crime Bill, and how people can take part in the process.

Answered by Humza Yousaf (14/11/2018):

A consultation document based on Lord Bracadale’s recommendations from his independent review of Hate Crime Legislation will be available to the public via Citizen Space from 14 November until 24 February 2019. In parallel we will be undertaking a series of consultation events across Scotland from December until early February to increase the opportunity for stakeholders and the public to respond to the consultation in part or in whole.

The consultation will also explore the findings of the Working Group on Defining Sectarianism in Scots Law, and the Working Group’s report will also be published on 14 November. The findings from the consultation exercise will inform the content of consolidated and modernised Hate Crime legislation.

Current Status: Initiated by the Scottish Government. Answered by Humza Yousaf on 14/11/2018
