Section 8:  A new public body

(Please see Questions 48 to 50 in the Respondent Information Form)

The financial redress scheme will not be run by the Scottish Government.  It will be independent.  We think that a new public body should be set up to run the scheme.

We want to know if you agree with this and, if so, what you think the new public body should be called.

We also want to know where in Scotland the new public body should be located and what factors should be taken into account in deciding where it is located.

A new public body will need a Chair and a Chief Executive.  These positions will need to be filled through a formal public appointments process, which applies to all public bodies in Scotland.

We want to know how you think survivors could be involved in the process of appointing a Chair and a Chief Executive, and how to select the survivors to be involved in doing that.
