This is an issue the Celtic League focused on two years ago. At the time when we wrote the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child, Children’s Commissioners in Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland, the MOD and other agencies expressing concerns.

One of the most positive responses was from the Children’s Commissioner for Scotland (via Enquiries Office Linda Ellis MacDonald) who carried out exhaustive enquiries on the issue.

There is a plethora of exchanges on this at our main site:
