CAS Response to Scottish Parliament Finance Committee Call for Evidence: Draft Budget 2013-14

 CAS' response to the Scottish Parliament in relation to the draft Scottish Budget 2013-14.

CAS welcomes the Scottish Government's focus and commitment to increase sustainable economic growth and to encourage more employment opportunities for those from areas of multiple deprivation. However we also recognise there are many barriers to employment for some sections of society and we remain concerned over how welfare and benefit changes that have been recently introduced, or are in the pipeline between now and 2017, will impact on the lives of people in Scotland. CAS hopes that the draft Scottish Budget 2013-14 will recognise the challenges ahead especially in relation to changes in welfare and how that will impact negatively on the economy.
