To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide the detailed equality impact assessment of the proposal to reduce funding to the Citizens Advice Direct service.
Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 8 March 2019
The Scottish Government recognises the work Citizens Advice Direct plays in the offering of advice and information to people across the country through the provision of telephone and online services. No equality impact assessment was undertaken as the agreement with Citizens Advice Direct is that there will be no reduction in staffing or service levels.
