Shaw report published online

A review by the Keeper of the Records of Scotland of Scottish public records legislation following recommendations from The Historical Abuse Systemic Review of Residential Schools and Children’s Homes in Scotland (the Shaw Report) has now been published online. A 72 page PDF document, it can be accessed at www.nas.gov.uk/documents/Keeper'sReport.pdf.

Several failures were identified in record keeping in the process, and the National Archives of Scotland has since been asked to prepare a follow up consultation document on how to address the shortcomings identified.
