That this House congratulates Glasgow's Rape Crisis Centre on its 40th anniversary; considers that the service has provided free, sensitive and confidential support to vulnerable women across Glasgow and the West of Scotland for four decades and is a lifeline service for local women who have suffered rape, sexual abuse or assault; longs for the day when there is no requirement for such a service; commends the charity for its inspirational work in recent years which includes over 11 ,000 calls to its advice and support telephone line in 2015-16 from 1,000 vulnerable individuals; and wishes the staff and volunteers in Glasgow's Rape Crisis Centre the very best for the future.
