CAS submission to the Health and Sport Committee Scrutiny of the UK Welfare Reform Bill Legislative Consent Motion

CAS's submission to the Scottish Parliament Health & Sport Committee, which will be scrutinising the UK Welfare Reform Bill Legislative Consent Motion, gives detail on the impact of aspects of the bill to Scotland’s people, services and economy. In addition it sets out our arguments for the establishment of a Scottish Parliament Welfare and Benefits Committee and our position on the LCM.

Citizens Advice Scotland believes aspects of the UK Welfare Reform bill will have a damaging impact on the people, services and economy of Scotland. We are pleased that the Scottish Parliament has now begun a process that will lead to further scrutiny of this bill as we feel that this is very much needed.
