CLYDEBANK and Milngavie's MSP has questioned the Deputy First Minister on a policy to protect children across Scotland.
At the ministerial statement for the Named Person policy, Gil Paterson MSP was among many others to ask John Swinney MSP.
"As a long-standing MSP who remembers well supporting this policy as an opposition MSP when introduced by the Labour-Liberal Democrat administration, I welcome that the Cabinet Secretary focused so much of his statement on the wider GIRFEC policy. One of the most important aspects of the legislation is Park 3 which requires local authorities to plan children services effectively — can he advise when this will come into effect?"
