Social Security Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Jeremy Balfour

My final question is on the make-up of a tribunal. I appreciate the way in which you have drawn up the regulations, but there seems to be scope to have either two-member or three-member trib...



Social Security Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Jeremy Balfour

Social Security Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Jeremy Balfour

Social Security Committee 04 October 2018 [Draft] : 04 October 2018


Jeremy Balfour

Jeremy Balfour (Lothian) (Con)

I start by wishing a happy birthday to Age Scotland and by thanking it for the reception that was held last night. I also thank Sandra White for bringing the debate to the chamber. For the f...



Meeting of the Parliament 02 October 2018 [Draft] : 02 October 2018


Jeremy Balfour (Lothian) (Con)

I welcome the debate and the journey that the Government and the Parliament have been on over the past two years with regard to social security.



Meeting of the Parliament 02 October 2018 [Draft] : 02 October 2018


Jeremy Balfour (Lothian) (Con)

I had hoped to take my two girls to watch Hearts going into the final, but the change of time makes that impossible because of their age. Does the minister agree ...



Social Security Committee 27 September 2018 [Draft] : 27 September 2018


Jeremy Balfour
