Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 9 March 2018

To ask the Scottish Government when it will appoint a forecaster to assist in the determination of eligibility regarding cold-spell heating assistance regulations.

Answered by: Jeane Freeman 27 March 2018

As we design and develop our policy around cold-spell heating allowance, we will consider the most appropriate, accurate and cost-effective ways in which to ensure that weather forecasting and monitoring can support the targeting of the assistance to those in greatest need.
