Consultation on hate crime law

The Scottish Government has launched a new consultation calling on the public to help shape consolidated and modernised hate crime legislation.

‘One Scotland: Hate Has No Home Here’ follows on from Lord Bracadale’s review of existing hate crime legislation in Scotland, which included recommendations that additional statutory aggravations should be created for age and gender.

The consultation calls for views on a number of issues including how best to tackle gender based prejudice and misogyny. The issue of sectarianism will also be considered with the consultation seeking views on how this could be tackled through law, based on the findings of the Working Group on Defining Sectarianism in Scots Law.

The public responses will inform the development of a hate crime Bill, which will be laid before Holyrood later in this session of Parliament.

The consultation will run until 24th February 2019.

It can be found here.
