The Free Speech Union is launching a hotline for anyone arrested or contacted by the police under Scotland’s hate crime law. The group, which campaigns for freedom of speech, said it had attracted 1,000 new Scottish members in recent weeks as the row over the new law intensifies. The organisation has also signed a deal with the legal firm Levy & McRae to fund them to represent any free speech cases arising from the new legislation.
