Responding to the news that the Education Secretary, John Swinney, will repeal the SNP’s named person legislation, Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
“This news is yet another humiliation for the Education Secretary and his Government.
“The Scottish Government has wasted years of time and the goodwill of the people from the children’s sector involved in the policy. It lost the confidence of parents and frontline professionals. We all want to see mechanisms to help keep children safe but this SNP plan was impossible to implement.”
