“Tackling Religious Hatred: Report of the Cross-Party Working Group on Religious Hatred” – Scottish Executive 2002

This Report sets out the conclusions of the Cross-Party Working Group on Possible Legislation to Tackle Religious Hatred in Scotland. It considers whether legislation is necessary or desirable, readily capable of enforcement and likely to lead to the reduction of sectarianism and other forms of religious hatred. The group has also considered whether there are other, more appropriate ways to tackle the issue of religious hatred and send a strong signal to the public that there is no place for bigotry in today's Scotland.
