Meeting of the Parliament 04 December 2019 [Draft] : 04 December 2019


Bob Doris

Meeting of the Parliament 04 December 2019 [Draft] : 04 December 2019


Bob Doris (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (SNP)

I will focus on two areas of the debate: making Scotland fairer for children who are living in poverty and wider issues around benefit take-up. In doing so, I wil...



Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 November 2019


The Convener

It has certainly been a thought-provoking and interesting evidence session. I thank both witnesses for their time and for giving evidence.



Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 November 2019

Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 November 2019


The Convener

That is helpful. I am using these numbers for illustrative purposes only but, if the measure was to displace £100 million of UK-reserved benefits that would other...



Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 November 2019


The Convener

Is there an underlying principle that the individuals taking part in a citizens basic income would not be at detriment? Would th...



Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 November 2019


The Convener
