Committee seeks views on Welfare Funds (Scotland) Bill, 25/06/14 - 28/08/14 [S]

The Scottish Parliament’s Welfare Reform Committee has asked for views on the Scottish Government’s Welfare Funds (Scotland) Bill. The Bill was introduced on 10 June and aims to put the interim Scottish Welfare Fund (SWF) arrangements on a statutory footing.

Deputy Convener Jamie Hepburn MSP said:

“In scrutinising the Bill, the Committee will examine the costs associated with the proposals it contains. As such, we are asking people to give their thoughts on whether the costs attributed to the running of the fund and the set-up of the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman to administer secondary reviews are realistic and proportionate.”

The closing date for receipt of submissions is Thursday 28 August 2014.

For full details see the Scottish Parliament website.
