To ask the Scottish Government what shadowing activities Community Justice Scotland is conducting in 2016, as referred to in the Programme for Government.
Answered by: Annabelle Ewing 3 November 2016
Creating Community Justice Scotland initially as a shadow enables the early engagement of the chair, board and chief executive in the process setting of the vision, structure and corporate plan of the body, prior to it going live. This allows individuals who will have a future role in the running of the body to contribute to decisions on its future role, responsibilities and management.
