To ask the Scottish Government when it will begin providing the Best Start Grant.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 9 November 2016
The timescales for delivering the Best Start Grant and the other social security benefits that are being devolved are yet to be finalised. Our consultation on the future of social security closed last week and we will use this and the information gathered from the many events we held, to help inform our decisions.
