Meeting of the Parliament 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Margaret McCulloch (Central Scotland) (Lab) The Wood commission commented on the need for additional funding if there is to be longer-term growth in the modern apprenticeship programme, but sectors are facing a reduction in funding right now after a 10-year freeze in contribution rates. Does the cabinet secretary share my concern that the rep...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener (Margaret McCulloch) I welcome everyone to the 12th meeting in 2014 of the Equal Opportunities Committee and ask everyone to set their electronic devices to flight mode or to switch them off.

The first agenda item is an evidence session on female genital mutilation. We will start the session with some introdu...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener Thank you. I congratulate Detective Superintendent Guild on his promotion.

Police Scotland’s written submission states that

“since the 1 April 2013 there have been 14 referrals submitted to Police Scotland relating to 16 children at risk of FGM.”

Can you give us some...

Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener I assume that no action was taken on the 16 children who were reported as being at risk. Is that correct?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener I do not know whether I am allowed to ask this question, but I am going to ask it anyway. Had any of the children been subjected to FGM?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener You say that most referrals have been about concerns, but have you had any experience of young children or teenagers having had this done to them at all? Has anyone reported having had it done to them?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener Do you think that Police Scotland has enough resources to tackle the problem?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener Do you think that other agencies are hesitant to report their concerns about children having FGM done to them?



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener How do you suggest that we change the attitudes and fears in those organisations? At the end of the day, it is child abuse. If it was another form of child abuse, agencies would be keener to act on it.



Equal Opportunities Committee 19 June 2014 : Thursday, June 19, 2014
The Convener Before I hand over to Christian Allard, I have a brief question. You have talked about sharing information. A witness at a previous evidence session told us that, in England, there is a kind of medical card that confirms that a girl has not had FGM imposed on her. When a family takes a young girl ou...
