In May I formally launched my consultation on mediation.
The main focus of my consultation is increasing the use and consistency of mediation services by establishing a new process of court-initiated mediation that includes an initial mandatory process involving a statutory duty mediator.
Below is my video launching the consultation and here is a link to the parliament webpage for the consultation.https://www.parliament.scot/parliamentarybusi…/…/111864.aspx
This webpage contains the responses to the consultation which I have received.
In line with the Scottish Parliament’s Member’s Bill Process, I am now publishing the responses, excluding confidential responses, below.
The submissions are ordered by; respondent name, chronological position, and status as either an individual or organisational response.
RAD = Received After Deadline.
In addition to the responses below 6 not for publication responses were received.
