*The Christian Institute and others v The Lord Advocate

Human rights – Right to respect for private and family life. The Supreme Court held that the information-sharing provisions of Pt 4 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 were not within the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament owing to the fact that in practice they might result in a disproportionate interference with the rights of many children, young persons and their parents, under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights through the sharing of private information.
