S5W-19697: Kezia Dugdale (Lothian)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 31 October 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what recent meetings the Cabinet Secretary for Justice has had with the Victims' Commissioner for (a) England and Wales and (b) London, and what issues were discussed.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 8 November 2018

I have not had any recent meetings with the Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales or the Victims’ Commissioner for London.

I have met a number of victim support organisations and victims’ families. These discussions have directly informed the package of commitment relating to victims in the Programme for Government and the development of the Victims Taskforce, which will ensure victims’ voices are heard and provide them with better support and information.
