What’s happening at Scottish Conference today?

There will almost certainly be several sore heads this morning as Alistair Carmichael held one of his celebrated whisky tasting events last night.

Here’s what’s happening the rest of today.

Morning Session

Cervical Cancer Screening

Police Reform

Speech by Christine Jardine MP

Emergency Motion

Animal Welfare

Lunchtime Fringe

I am shamelessly abusing my position to put the meeting I’m chairing first – about addressing Scotland’s housing crisis with Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP and speakers from Shelter Scotland, the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations and the Chartered Institute of Housing.

There’s also an NFU Scotland fringe meeting with Mike Rumbles discussing The Good Food Nation and Brexit – what will be needed to develop the right policies for food producers.

Commercial sexual exploitation and human trafficking

Afternoon session

Benefits of immigration – federal working group members please note the positive tone of this.

Willie Rennie’s Leader’s Speech

Establishing real freedom of choice – this is probably the most contentious motion of the Conference, calling for decriminalisation of abortion.

Constitutional amendments

Evening Fringe

ASLDC AGM

RNIB Scotland – Making elections truly inclusive – encouraging people with disabilities to stand and making election materials accessible.

Evening events

Conference Dinner

The legendary Scottish Young Liberals quiz

    Regarding the motion on cervical screening it would be good if we sometimes looked at the cost effectiveness of different types of screening, the impact of false positives and the unnecessary medicalisation of women’s bodies. We do tend to assume that all health spending is always good in all circumstances.
