Non-statutory version of Named Person being rolled out

"There is, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom declared recently, `an inextricable link between the protection of the family and the protection of fundamental freedoms in liberal democracies."

"The judges added: `Different upbringings produce different people. The first thing that a totalitarian regime tries to do is to get at the children, to distance them from the subversive, varied influences of their families and indoctrinate them in their ruler`s view of the world`."

"`Within limits, families must be left to bring up their children in their own way`..."

"How revealing then, that this quote comes direct from the Supreme Court`s ruling two summers ago, against the SNP Government`s notorious and hated Named Person law..."

"So we need to be careful. As the Scottish Mail on Sunday reports today, a non-statutory version of the Named Person scheme is being rolled out across Scotland, as we speak."

"The danger is that, even though the Supreme Court has ruled against the statutory plans, they are brought in by stealth nevertheless."

"As the No2NP campaign makes clear, parents should know their rights. If a Named Person offers advice or a service to you, you don`t have to accept it. If a Named Person tries to override your wishes, it is they - not you - who may be breaching conventions on human rights."
