Will Nicola Sturgeon clear up the confusion ?

"CAMPAIGNERS fighting the SNP’s state guardians plan have demanded a meeting with Nicola Sturgeon to clear up confusion over the controversial scheme."

"The First Minister has claimed the Named Person scheme is "not compulsory" and said parents can "opt out", despite clear evidence to the contrary."

"Amid the growing concern over the plans, Simon Calvert, of the No 2 Named Persons campaign group, has written to Ms Sturgeon to ask for an urgent meeting."

"He writes: `You have made various statements in recent days concerning the implementation of the Named Person scheme that seem to be confusing`."

" `The content of these statements are at some significant variance with the legislation as passed by the Scottish Parliament.` "

Are the Named Person provisions compulsory or not ?

See Part 4 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 below and in particular the section on information sharing:
