S5W-02987: McNeill, Pauline (Glasgow)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 3 October 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to improve conditions for people in poverty who are in paid employment.

Answered by: Keith Brown 26 October 2016

I refer the member to the answer to question S5W-01646 on 23 August 2016. Since then the Fairer Scotland Action Plan was published on 5 October 2016, with 50 government actions for this parliamentary term and a call for everyone to get involved in delivering a fairer and more prosperous country. As well as responding to the Fairer Scotland discussions, the Plan sets out progress to date on meeting the recommendations of the report of Naomi Eisenstadt the Independent Adviser on Poverty and Inequality.
