To ask the Scottish Government what relationship its new social security agency, as referred to in the Programme for Government, will have with local government.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 28 September 2016
We are undertaking a detailed business case to explore how the agency and wider social security system will work in Scotland. This will consider both national and local delivery options and aim to make sure services are streamlined and accessible. This work will be informed by the results of the social security consultation published on 29 July 2016.
