To ask the Scottish Government how many people have applied to join the social security experience panels, and how many have been accepted.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 23 February 2017
As I referenced in my statement to Parliament, I will announce more details on the Experience Panels in the next few weeks.
In advance of recruitment launching, those interested in taking part can email the Scottish Government researchers who are setting up the panels at SocialSecurityExperience@gov.scot. Details of those who have contacted us have been stored securely, and individuals will be
re-contacted with more information about how to register for the Panels when recruitment launches.
