Scottish Parliament petition on time for reflection

June 30, 2014

The Humanist Society Scotland has responded to a petition currently being heard in the Scottish Parliament.

Petition PE1514 calls for a 25% quota of atheists to lead Time for Reflection.

HSS welcomes the debate, and supports – in principle – a more representative form of Time for Reflection, however HSS does not support the specific measures suggested in the petition.
