NEWSFLASH: Scottish National Party makes manifesto commitment to end child detention

The Scottish National Party has published its manifesto today - and they have included a commitment to end child detention.

"Our MPs will continue to ...stand up for what is right, arguing for example for the Home Office to end the practice of holding the children of asylum seekers in detention centres."

It's on page 16 of the SNP manifesto, which you can find here.

That means that the Lib Dems, Greens, Plaid Cymru and the SNP have all made manifesto commitments to end child detention. Congratulations to Sanctuary Pledge teams in Scotland who have worked hard to make this happen!
