The Scottish Government is calling on the public to help shape hate crime legislation with the launch of a new consultation

‘One Scotland: Hate Has No Home Here’ follows on from Lord Bracadale’s ‘Independent Review of Hate Crime Legislation in Scotland’ was published in May 2018.

The consultation calls for views on a number of issues including how best to tackle age based prejudice and the impact of hate crime law on vulnerable groups.

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 hate crime legislation consultation ‘One Scotland: Hate Has No Home Here’is now open and will run until 24 February 2019.
