National Stalking Awareness Day Debate, 22/04/15 [S]

Debate in the Scottish Parliament on 22 April 2015 on National Stalking Awareness Day, the debate was opened by Rhoda Grant (Lab).

At motion was debated without any question being put:

That the Parliament recognises National Stalking Awareness Day, which falls on 18 April 2015; notes that the focus for this yearís activities keeps the spotlight on raising awareness of the dangers of stalking among young people; understands that the 2010 NUS report, Hidden Marks, highlighted that 60% of college students experienced stalking; further understands that research shows that stalking among young people is being overlooked in favour of bullying; welcomes this focus for the 2015 National Stalking Awareness Day and believes that it will both help raise awareness of stalking and have it recognised as much as a young personís problem as it is an adultís, and believes that bullying in its severest form is stalking.

For full details see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 22 April 2015 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
