Dr Elisabeth Wilson Speaks at Hamilton Conference on Domestic Abuse issues.

March 1, 2019 11:22 AM

At the Party's Spring Conference in Hamilton, East Lothian Liberal Democrats play a prominent part in passing a motion supporting those who suffer domestic abuse.

Dr Elisabeth Wilson, Vice Convenor, summarized a motion which, amongst other things, called for the Scottish Government to review and update the Matrimonial Homes (Family Protection) (Scotland) Act 1981 so that abusers can be swiftly moved out of homes while having their right to a home elsewhere unabridged.

The Convenor of East Lothian Liberal Democrats, Robert O'Riordan said:

"At the moment political parties in Government at Holyrood and Westminster are often are ignoring vital social problem which need to be addressed with long term solutions. Domestic abuse is an important issue in East Lothian as well as elsewhere in the country. The measures proposed by the Liberal Democrats would, if implemented, have a real and positive impact on people and families caught in difficult positions often through no fault of their own"
