S5W-22517: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 3 April 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the comment in its cold spell and winter heating assistance position paper regarding Winter Heating Assistance that "No one will lose out as a result of the replacement payment", whether this commitment applies to people who (a) are currently entitled and (b) will have future entitlement to the benefit.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 23 April 2019

Our position paper clearly states that we expect that delivery of Winter Heating Assistance will continue on the basis of existing eligibility.
