NAMED PERSON LEGAL CHALLENGE BEGINS IN SUPREME COURT TODAY

This morning proceedings will begin at the UK Supreme Court in London in the continued fight to oppose the Scottish Government’s Named Person legislation.

Last year judges in Scotland’s highest court ruled that the legislation did not conflict with human rights or data protection laws.

But groups and individuals involved in the NO2NP campaign appealed the decision, taking the case to the Supreme Court.

The hearing will last two days and be heard by five judges.

Watch the hearing live from 10:30am on the Supreme Court website.

There has been continued widespread media coverage on the Named Person issue in recent days, including articles in The Herald, The Scotsman, the Scottish Daily Mail, the Scottish Daily Express and on the front page of the Scottish Daily Telegraph.
