Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) I have just two questions, because I am aware of the time constraints.

Minister, you will be aware that the committee has had great difficulty in convincing the appropriate Westminster ministers and cabinet secretaries to come to speak to us. Although it is always nice to see you here and...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani As I said, it is nice to have you here, but I still contend that less a day’s notice is not an acceptable level of respect for our convener or committee.

Leading on from what you have just said, I am glad that you have been very much involved because I think that I am right in saying that...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani Can I suggest to you that those are consequences of the development of policy? What I am really interested in is the level of engagement that the Scotland Office has had with the policy development of welfare reform, in that it has a responsibility, to some degree, to protect the people of Scotland ...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
Linda Fabiani Perhaps the minister could accompany Lord Freud along to this committee at some point in the future.



Welfare Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) I have just one question—it is a very general one. I was interested in the last point in your key points summary, Professor Fothergill, which Jamie Hepburn referred to. It is the point that

“In the absence of a big shift into employment, a key effect of the welfare reforms will be to wide...

Welfare Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Linda Fabiani Thank you.



Welfare Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Linda Fabiani I want to stick to the joining-up theme. I also want to talk about employers because we never acknowledge enough the benefits of small and medium-sized enterprises to the cohesion and wellbeing of communities.

The report talks about maintaining benefits into employment for a period. I ass...

Welfare Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Linda Fabiani You heard the earlier evidence from Sheffield Hallam University. From my point of view, the evidence is absolutely clear that an independent Scotland could afford its own social security system. I would like your opinion on whether, by setting up its own system, Scotland could narrow the wide, and w...

Welfare Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Linda Fabiani I do. It is a constituency query on which I would appreciate the officials’ view. The question was previously submitted to a your say session, although the lady involved was not able to come along. It is a very simple question about the possibility of having a duplicate blue badge. The straightforwa...

Welfare Reform Committee 24 June 2014 : Tuesday, June 24, 2014
Linda Fabiani I understand the idea of trying to limit fraud. That is perfectly acceptable. However, it seems to me that there are always things that are absolutely genuine exceptions. It is all very well having the right to a blue badge but, in a situation in which it so happens that you cannot use your own car—...
