Consultation: Independent Review of Hate Crime Legislation in Scotland

Scottish Government Consultation Overview: “The consultation seeks views to inform the independent review of hate crime legislation in Scotland, conducted by Lord Bracadale. The review is considering whether changes need to be made to the current laws; whether existing offences should be extended to cover other groups; and whether all hate crimes should be brought into one area of legislation. This consultation does not advocate a preferred Scottish Government approach.
