Scottish Parliament Official Report 28.1.10: Richard Baker (North East Scotland) (Lab): I am sure that the cabinet secretary will be aware of the offences that were committed by Ryan Yates, who sought to attack two children in Aberdeen just two days into a sexual offences prevention order. Does he agree that there should be an investigation into that shocking incident to see what more could have been done to restrict Mr Yates’s behaviour and whether, in the light of the incident, there should be a review of procedures?
