To ask the Scottish Government whether it plans to consult on proposals regarding support for carers before 2021, and what the reasons are for its position on this.
Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 20 March 2019
The Scottish Government will ensure that we consult on our proposals for the introduction of Carer’s Assistance in 2021. The Scottish Government is committed to building a social security system based on the needs and views of people who receive benefits.
