Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 7 June 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what progress it is making with the implementation of the recommendations in Scotland’s National Action Plan to Prevent and Eradicate Female Genital Mutilation.

Answered by: Angela Constance 19 June 2017

The Scottish Government has established a Multi-Agency National Implementation Group to oversee implementation and monitor progress of the actions from the National Action Plan to Prevent and Eradicate Female Genital Mutilation. The Implementation group held its inaugural meeting in November 2016 and has met on a quarterly basis over the course of 2017.

A ‘Year One Update’ on the National Action Plan will be published later this year, documenting the actions and activities undertaken in the first year of the plan.
