Welfare Reform Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Linda Fabiani (East Kilbride) (SNP) I have forgotten why I originally wanted to come in, but it seemed terribly important at the time.

I will respond to a few comments and seek responses on a few issues. What bothers me most of all is the big-picture stuff. There is the cumulative effect that we have heard about when there ...

Welfare Reform Committee 01 April 2014 : Tuesday, April 01, 2014
Linda Fabiani Can we talk a wee bit more about how sanctions affect other benefits, such as housing benefit, and the experiences of people who are working in the field? That knock-on effect is awful.



Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Linda Fabiani (Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body) There are facilities available for showing documentary films, however the facilities used would be dependent on specific requirements. It is always best to get as much notice as possible, so that those specific requirements can be met.



Meeting of the Parliament 27 March 2014 : Thursday, March 27, 2014
Linda Fabiani I am aware of the issue, and of what happened. However, I understand that the last time Christine Grahame showed a documentary film was right after a committee meeting and there was no time to change the layout of the room, which precluded use of larger screens.

Welfare Reform Committee 18 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Welfare Reform Committee 18 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Linda Fabiani Is there any uniformity across authorities?



Welfare Reform Committee 18 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Linda Fabiani That is good. At what level in local authorities are these decisions taken? As senior officers, are you left to work out, from your experience and in discussion with other members of staff, what further guidance should be in place beyond the Government guidance, or does that come from the chief exec...

Welfare Reform Committee 18 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Linda Fabiani Does that apply generally? I see everyone else nodding—that is good.



Welfare Reform Committee 18 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Linda Fabiani My question is on the same point—it ties in rather well. I was thinking of the potential underspends this year from the point of view of sanctions and things that are likely to increase the spend. What are local authorities’ views about what would happen if you were to run out of funds before the en...

Welfare Reform Committee 18 March 2014 : Tuesday, March 18, 2014
Linda Fabiani Maybe he is too busy.
