On Thursday 28th July 2016 at 9.45 the UK Supreme Court will issue its judgment on whether the Scottish Government’s controversial and, in practice unworkable and unsustainable Named Person universal and compulsory provision of a state guardian for every young person from birth to legal maturity contravenes with human rights and/or data protection laws.
The judgment in the case will be streamed live on the Supreme Court website. It is listed here on the site as ‘(1) The Christian Institute and others (Appellants) v The Lord Advocate (Respondent) (Scotland)’ .
The fight to oppose the Scottish Government’s Named Person legislation continued to the UK Supreme Court after judges in Scotland’s highest court ruled last year that the legislation did not conflict with human rights or data protection laws.
A two-day hearing involving five judges took place in the Supreme Court on the 8th and 9th March, at the end of which judgment was reserved to a later date – which will ow be the 28th July, as above.
