S5W-14351: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 2 February 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5O-01753 by Jeane Freeman on 31 January 2018, which stated that it will "reduce the need for face to face assessments", whether this is consistent with the comments by the Minister for Social Security in the Daily Record on 24 January 2018 that "rather than have two people do two assessments, they could have all the information we have as their core assessment for ESA, with maybe some additional elements they need".

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 2 March 2018

Yes.
