Maggie Mellon: An open letter to John Swinney on Named Person
Campaigner Maggie Mellon offers some advice to deputy first minister and education secretary John Swinney on the Scottish Government's Named Person scheme
DEAR John Swinney,
You have asked for engagement on the future of the Named Person following the ruling of the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court ruled the information sharing provisions unlawful and also cautioned that parental or child consent to share personal information should not be obtained by the threat of any possible consequences.
