Joint Briefing for MSPs – February 2023
This briefing has been produced to support MSPs considering the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill. It covers the purpose and history of the Bill, its challenge in the UK Supreme Court, the next steps as set out in the Deputy First Minister’s statement of 24th May 2022, and addresses repeated attempts by MSPs to challenge the Scottish Government on delays in bringing an amended bill back for reconsideration. This briefing will help MSPs prepare for a debate on the motion UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill on 7 February 2023. We urge MSPs to come together in the same sense of unity which saw the Bill pass unanimously close to two years ago.
