Parliamentary debates and questions

S5W-16464: Alex Rowley (Mid Scotland and Fife)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 8 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-13788 by Angela Constance on 17 January 2018, whether the cabinet secretary has received a response from the secretary of state regarding the plan to facilitate the exploration of a citizens' basic income scheme.

Answered by: Angela Constance 15 May 2018

No response has been received to date in relation to my letter to the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions of 21 December 2017.

Given the wealth of knowledge and practical insight UK Government departments can offer in relation to a Citizens Basic Income, a letter reiterating the request was issued by myself on 2 May 2018.
