Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi (Edinburgh Central) (SNP) Good morning. I am the member of the Scottish Parliament for Edinburgh Central and the deputy convener of the committee.



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi Commentators sometimes point to the lack of arrests in Scotland and, until recently, south of the border. How important are arrests to being seen to be taking the issue seriously? Would it be tokenism if an arrest was made simply to address those concerns?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi It has been suggested in evidence—and I know that this has come up already—that it is difficult to get family members to criminalise each other. That must also be the case for reporting other forms of child abuse. Is that a particular issue in the context of FGM, or is it the cultural issues that ma...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi How would you expect to hear of a potential case? What were the sources of the referrals that you have had? Were the sources the young people themselves?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi All those cases were incidents in which children were at risk rather than ones that you were made aware of after the event. Were a case to come to your attention after the event, presumably there would be investigation and, potentially, prosecution.

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi I presume that, as there have been no arrests—you have not mentioned any—there have not been any examples of after-the-event FGM drawn to your attention in the past year.



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi Changes are being made to legislation south of the border to cover habitual as well as permanent residence. How would that affect all the issues that I have just asked about?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi Should the changes be made more widely?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi Yes.



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
Marco Biagi Are people sufficiently aware of the current laws? I do not so much mean whether people in the communities are aware but those in the public sector, such as teachers, NHS workers and the others that you mentioned who make the referrals.
