Abstract

Considers the proposal in the Protection of Children and Prevention of Sexual Offences (Scotland) Bill 2004 for an offence of meeting or travelling to meet children for the purpose of committing a sexual offence following grooming behaviour. Examines the definition of the criminalised behaviour, noting the requirement for intent to abuse. Reviews the preventative approach to child protection in the Protection of Children (Scotland) Act 2003.
