Sandra White (Glasgow Kelvin) (SNP)

Chair—



Justice Committee 07 October 2014 : Tuesday, October 07, 2014
Sandra White

I want to pick up on that point. I had the experience of going out with the police to a hot spot in Glasgow where there were young girls who had been drinking and were very vulnerable. The police officers and ourselves took them home. When police officers take such young girls home, does that automatically trigger the involvement of social services and is that what you mean by local agencies being involved?

Sandra White

Thank you.



Justice Committee 07 October 2014 : Tuesday, October 07, 2014

I need to remember that, if I ask a supplementary, I will be put to the very bottom of the list.



Justice Committee 07 October 2014 : Tuesday, October 07, 2014
Sandra White

I will certainly remember that.

I am sorry, but I have to say that that should apply to everyone who interrupts, but apart from that—

I am not challenging anyone, convener.

Sandra White

Thank you very much for your evidence, panel. I have listened to what you have said about the projects that you are involved in—you are doing an absolutely fantastic job. Obviously, there are questions to be raised.

I was pleased when you mentioned that you are working with voluntary sector organisations, such as Barnardo’s. I have visited Barnardo’s to see how it approaches the issue and the projects that it has on grooming and young children.

Before I ask a question, there is an issue on which I seek clarification. ACC Graham mentioned the risk of sexual harm orders and the fact that he wanted some amendments to be made to the Protection of Children and Prevention of Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2005. We have not explored that issue as much as we could have done. My understanding is that you would like the three-month period to be extended and the age group to be extended to 18, and that you would like physical and psychological abuse to be taken into account. Those are your recommendations to the committee, which came from the Public Petitions Committee.



Justice Committee 07 October 2014 : Tuesday, October 07, 2014
Sandra White

Thank you very much. That gives us something positive to go forward with.

I have a question about cross-border issues. You mentioned that, if somebody commits an offence in Scotland and moves down to England, the order will go with them. You also mentioned that, if someone from Scotland commits an offence in France, you can do something about it because Scotland has jurisdiction but, if they commit an offence in England, you cannot. Will you elaborate on that? What could the committee do to rectify that anomaly?



Justice Committee 07 October 2014 : Tuesday, October 07, 2014
Sandra White

I understand that the Cabinet Secretary for Justice is talking about legislating to sort out that loophole. Obviously, he is looking for a slot. I point that out as an area in which the committee could do something practical.
