Scotland to directly incorporate UNCRC into its domestic law

By unanimous vote, Scotland will be incorporating the text of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child directly into its domestic law.

The next stage, over three years, will be to implement the Convention, which include training and guidance.
