COSLA REPONSE ON ACCESS TO CHILDREN'S HOME DOCUMENTATION

A COSLA Spokesperson said: “Scottish local government is determined to right the wrongs of the past. We are fully committed to working with both survivors and agencies to ensure the removal of barriers to justice for survivors of historical child abuse. We fundamentally support the coming Limitation Act and recognise that a key aspect of implementing this legislation is access to files and records.

“We know this requires transparency and sensitivity and councils will do everything in their power to make records available.”
