Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 15 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government whether any underspend for an increased carers allowance will be protected if take-up does not meet estimates.

Spend on Carer’s Allowance will be demand led, which means the Scottish Government commits to meeting the costs of every valid claim made in each and every year.
