Zero Tolerance has produced a new briefing for journalists who are reporting on the Domestic Abuse (Scotland) Bill as it goes through the Scottish Parliament. It was produced in consultation with Scottish Women's Aid and ASSIST.
The Bill was introduced to the Scottish Parliament on 17 March 2017. If passed, we understand that it is likely to come into effect in late 2018 or early 2019. So, there are many opportunities for covering the Bill’s progress and contents, and then, if enacted, reporting on prosecutions.
It’s for any media journalist: local reporters, national press, bloggers, TV, radio, digital, editors, picture
