My name is John Swinburne, founder and leader of the Scottish Senior Citizens Unity Party. I served as an MSP for Central Scotland in Holyrood from 2003 to 2007. It was during this time that I first met Jimmy Deuchars and came into contact with his excellent 'Grandparets Apart' organisation.
Our Party the SSCUP fully endorse the stance which they are taking with regard to their Charter and I would urge you to give serious consideration to supporting this campaign from your position of authority.
Grandparents, for example, in the vast majority of cases could quickly spot any abuse of their own grandchildren and it is essential that everything possible is done to enable grandparents to have the legal right of access to their own grandchildren as this would be to their mutual benefit.
Thank you for giving your valuable time to this important issue.
