Our response to the Scottish Hate Crime consultation
The Scottish Government recently held a consultation on proposed changes to hate crime and public order legislation in Scotland. The consultation closed on 24th July 2020.
Among many concerns about the proposed changes to the law are fears that it will affect free speech – including the ability to speak about women’s sex-based rights.
Our working group, led by members in Scotland, submitted a detailed response to the consultation – which you can read via the PDF below.
