The Scottish Government have launched a new consultation on Scottish Hate Crime Legislation, following Lord Bracadale’s recommendations from his review of legislation.

It looks to gather your views on consolidating all legislation and expanding statuatory aggravations.

Throughout the consultation there will be a number of public events providing an opportunity for communities to come together and share their views.
