Government responds to our new Report on Welfare in an independent Scotland

“Support to get people into work, action to make work pay and the provision of a strong and decent safety net for those who are unable to work, should be the focus of the welfare system in an independent Scotland”, according to the Deputy First Minister. Ms Sturgeon was responding to our report from the independent Expert Working Group on Welfare, which outlines a vision for a fairer, simpler and more personal welfare system and provides nearly 40 recommendations for change following independence.

Interesting to see what the outcome will be of the Scottish independence referendum, 18 September 2014.
