S5W-22244: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 21 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government, in light of its consultation on disability assistance, with regard to duration of awards, what mechanism it will use to determine whether a person is likely to have a significant change in their needs in order to set a review point, and whether a person will be entitled to request a re-determination of the decision to set a review point in isolation.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 28 March 2019

We are inviting views on our approach to the duration of awards and redeterminations in our Consultation on Disability Assistance. Responses to the consultation will inform policy development.
