S5W-00808: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 16 June 2016

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-00241  by Angela Constance on 14 June 2016, by what date it will publish the funeral costs plan.

Answered by: Angela Constance 29 June 2016

We expect to publish the funeral costs plan by spring 2017, following development in collaboration with stakeholders, through round table discussions and a national conference on funeral poverty due to take place in autumn 2016. It will include views gathered during the broad consultation on social security in Scotland which will take place in 2016.
