S5W-22083: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 12 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the statement in its Social security case transfer: policy position paper that "before we can transfer existing claims we first need to deliver our new claims/application service", whether the transfer of existing cases is liable to delay should the new claims and application services fail to be established in accordance with the dates provided in the Cabinet Secretary for Social Security and Older People's letter to the Convener of the Social Security Committee of 28 February 2019.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 20 March 2019

Case transfer cannot commence until the new claims systems have been implemented.
