Festival of Politics event

The programme for this year's Festival of Politics was launched a few weeks ago. Why not visit the webpage.
On Tuesday 18 August, there will be a discussion organised by the Cross Party Group on Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse about the issues raised through their petition in 2000 (PE279). Its members successfully lobbied government to produce the National Strategy for Adult Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse – SurvivorScotland. The discussion will centre on the journey since then, how the public can influence the political process in Scotland and improve the lives of its citizens. Taking part are the Cross Party Group’s former Vice Convener, Kenneth Gibson MSP, Vice Convener and Petitioner, Anne Macdonald and Fergus Cochrane, Clerk to the Public Petitions Committee. Chaired by Margaret Mitchell MSP, Vice Convener. Click here for details about this free event.
