S5O-00074: Lewis Macdonald (North East Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 22 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government when a decision on the location of the Scottish benefits agency will be announced.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 29 June 2016

We are not yet at the stage of making a decision on the location of the new social security agency, and there will be many potential locations to consider the length and breadth of Scotland.

We will continue to engage with stakeholders, including local authorities, as the business case for the new agency is developed.
