New legislation on Human Rights for Scotland

📣 Today could mark the start of a new era for Human Rights in Scotland…Equalities Secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville has announced world-leading legislation to improve and advance human rights in Scotland.

Subject to the upcoming election, the planned new Bill would incorporate four UN human rights treaties fully and directly into Scots law.

The Bill will have specific protections to make a difference for:
🔷 Older people
🔷 People with disabilities
🔷 Women
🔷 Minority ethnic communities
🔷 LGBTI people

We very much welcome this ground-breaking new human rights law 👏
