To ask the Scottish Government by what date it will publish its family justice modernisation strategy.
Answered by: Ash Denham 25 January 2019
The Programme for Government for 2018-19 announced that there will be a Family Law Bill introduced during this parliamentary session. We will publish the Family Justice Modernisation Strategy when the Family Law Bill is introduced. The Family Justice Modernisation Strategy will set out work that is ongoing by Scottish Government and others; work that can be done via secondary legislation or by improved guidance; areas covered by the Bill; and areas that are for longer term work.
