Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 Guidance Oral Question 3/12/14 [S]

During Portfolio Question Time on 3 December 2014 Jayne Baxter (Lab) asked the Scottish Government whether they will provide an update on the progress of the accompanying guidance for the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.

The Minister for Children and Young People, Aileen Campbell, replied that statutory guidance on part 6 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, on early learning and childcare, was published in August 2014 to coincide with that part coming into force. The remaining statutory guidance to accompany the act will be formally consulted on prior to publication and within the appropriate timescales ahead of commencement of the relevant parts of the act.

For the full answer to this and any subsidiary questions see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 3 December 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
