S5W-09546: Patrick Harvie (Glasgow)

Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 31 May 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what the level of participation was in the Social Security Experience Panels, broken down by immigration status.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 13 June 2017

Our recruitment drive came to an end on 12 May with over 2,300 people across Scotland ready and willing to work with us as part of the Experience Panels.

The registration form did not collect information on immigration status. We are currently considering how to collect demographic and equality monitoring information from Experience Panel members.
