Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 15 May 2019

To ask the Scottish Government how it ensures that the Social Security Scotland Executive Advisory Board receives clear reports regarding the long-term financial impacts of social security investment, policy and delivery decisions.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 28 May 2019

Social Security Scotland’s Executive Advisory Body provides strategic advice and constructive challenge to the Chief Executive and the Senior Leadership Team. It specifically supports those activities for which the Agency Chief Executive is Accountable Officer. The Agency works closely alongside our Policy and Programme colleagues, in the Social Security Directorate, to deliver the devolution of social security in Scotland.
