In court today: ‘Parents bypassed by Named Person’
Parents would be ignored under the Named Person scheme, a QC has told the UK’s highest court today.
Aidan O’Neill QC was speaking for The Christian Institute, CARE, TYMES Trust and the Family Education Trust in the case against the Scottish Government.
A panel of five judges is considering legal arguments at the Supreme Court in London.
No parents required
Under the proposals, every child in Scotland will be assigned a named person from birth to the age of 18, who would be tasked with looking after their “wellbeing”.
O’Neill said the scheme gives named persons rights and duties to carry out their functions without reference to the parent.
In court the QC said a GP prescribing the contraceptive pill to a teenager would have to tell the girl’s named person.
“There is no requirement to involve parents in these matters”, he added.
