Justice Committee evidence sessons continue Tuesday 24/10/17

Tomorrow the Justice Committee continues to hear evidence in relation to James Kelly’s Repeal Bill which will, we expect, finally bring about the demise of the hated Offensive Behaviour Act.

The Committee will hear from a number of equalities and other groups including BEMIS, Scottish Disabled Supporters Association, the Scottish Women’s Convention, Stonewall Scotland and  SACRO.

The papers for the meeting can be found at

Papers for the Justice Committee 231017

Additional material supplied by the Police Service of Scotland and the COPFS can be found here and both make interesting reading…

FAC’s own supplementary evidence does not appear to have been posted yet but we will let you know when it has.

For those who have time tomorrow the meeting will be shown live on Parliamentary TV and later on the archive service.
