S5W-08435: Claudia Beamish (South Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 27 March 2017

To ask the Scottish Government whether the Scottish carer’s benefit will retain the benefit cap exemption that has been in place since November 2016.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 7 April 2017

Recipients of Carer’s Allowance are exempt from the UK Government’s benefit cap and we expect them to remain so when a Scottish carer’s benefit is introduced.
