Abstract
First paragraph: The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill marks a major milestone for children’s human rights in Scotland.  It will ensure children’s rights are woven into policy, law and practice in Scotland and that children can rely on their UNCRC rights in the domestic courts. When publishing a Children’s Rights Scheme, Scottish Ministers will need to report on how they will ‘promote complaints handling procedures that children can understand and use’ and ‘ensure that children have effective access to justice’. This brings us closer to ensuring a system of child-friendly complaints, remedy and redress is available to children across public bodies.
