A new future for social security in Scotland
The LITRG has responded to this consultation seeking views on how the new welfare powers in Scotland can be used to improve or change certain parts of the existing benefits system as well as seeking comment on new benefits and potential top-ups of existing benefits. While we are unable to offer views on what the changes to benefits should be, we would like to highlight some broad principles that we think need to be addressed.
The consultation can be found on the Scottish Government website.
