Scottish Liberal Democrats have today called for a commission to look into violence against women and girls and consider ways to make society more hospitable to them.
Party leader Willie Rennie and equalities spokesperson Caron Lindsay are asking for all major parties to commit to a commission to look into these issues and report back with recommendations within the first year of the new Parliament.
Liberal Democrat MPs will this evening vote against the UK Government's Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill.
Speaking ahead of the debate, former police officer and MP for North East Fife Wendy Chamberlain said:
"Like so many others, I was shocked and appalled at the events on Clapham Common on Saturday night. It is an outrage that a peaceful vigil in memory of Sarah Everard was shut down by the police. It is a disgrace that one of the women was arrested. It is very difficult to see how the Met could have gotten this more wrong - and I say that as a former police officer. The leadership have let down the rank-and-file officers. And it is right that Cressida Dick should now consider her position.
