S5W-01773: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 2 August 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what (a) goods and (b) information will be included in the baby box.

Answered by: Mark McDonald 22 August 2016

The Scottish Government is working with a variety of stakeholders, including parents’ groups, to agree which items will be included in the boxes. The Scottish baby boxes will be based on the model first developed in Finland, and will provide a range of baby clothing, equipment and simple, consistent information for new parents. The box will also double as a cot for new born babies, should parents wish to use it in this way.
