Welfare Reform Briefing

The CAS welfare reform briefing has been sent to all Scottish MPs before the 3rd reading of the Welfare Reform Bill in the House of Commons. The focus of the briefing looks at the major issues affecting our clients in the bill and impact on devolved legislation in Scotland.

Citizens Advice Bureaux in Scotland dealt with close to 189,000 new benefit issues in 2009/10 – 430 new benefit issues for every day of the year. CAS is concerned that the changes announced in the Welfare Reform Bill will be problematic for new and current benefit recipients and will increase the number of benefit issues brought to bureaux in Scotland.
