Letter to SNP Leadership says the time is now for making rights real.

Forces Children Scotland has put its signature to a letter that calls SNP leadership candidates to action, regarding the incorporation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into Scottish law.

Reassurance has been asked for regarding ongoing commitment to the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill, to make sure it’s brought back to the Scottish Parliament as a matter of urgency and to ensure it is passed within the current parliamentary term.

The letter represents a general frustration felt by many children and young people that the UNCRC Incorporation Bill is still not law despite having been passed almost two years ago with the support of all the political parties in the Scottish Parliament.
