Breast feeding

Received a slightly odd phone call from a national journalist who had been following this subject in Scotland. I am sure that she said that "you now can't make it a criminal offence to breasfeed in public in Scotland" - I had never been aware that it was a criminal offence but the point of her call was to ask me whether there were any moves afoot in the UK parliament to introduce something similar!

Had to tell her that I knew of nothing and as we hadn't even been able to achieve acceptance of breastfeeding in the House of Commons it was unlikely that anyone would be rushing to change the law nationwide.

Don't hold your breath.
