New Bill to allow historical abuse records access

The National Archives of Scotland has announced that a new parliamentary bill to improve record keeping and to help vulnerable people trace their records more easily has just been published by the Scottish Government.

The Public Records (Scotland) Bill aims to strengthen the transparency and accountability of record keeping across the public sector. It will also fulfil one of the main recommendations of the Historical Abuse Systemic Review (the Shaw Report of 2007).
