Motion S4M-12616: Female Genital Mutilation Funding

10 Mar 2015

That the Parliament welcomes the Scottish Government’s announcement that nearly £220,000 of funding will be made available to help prevent female genital mutilation (FGM) in Scotland; notes that this money will go to charities that support those affected by FGM; hopes that the money will help to raise awareness of and provide aid to the 3,000 girls born of mothers who come to Scotland from FGM-practising countries; believes that FGM has no place in Scotland, and pledges to do all that it can to stop this cruel and barbaric practice.
