Families Need Fathers to be discussed in Scottish Parliament

Following a member's motion by John Mason MSP that received cross party support, the involvement of fathers in Scottish families will be debated in the Scottish Parliament on February 27th.

Mr Mason's motion comments on the welcome that Families Need Fathers Scotland gave to the emphasis on fathers in the recent National Parenting Strategy, and goes on to suggest that: "... that Glasgow and Scotland as a whole would benefit from a debate on the role of fathers and their rights and responsibilities."

The debate will take place on Wednesday 27th February after the 5pm decision time in the Scottish Parliament. 

Some FNFS members have already contacted their own MSPs to suggest issues that could be raised.

We look forward to a lively discussion about what the Scottish Government can do to make sure that children in separated families benefit from the involvement of both parents as well as grandparents and other relatives from both sides of their family.
