Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener (Michael McMahon) Welcome to the 11th meeting of the Welfare Reform Committee in 2014. I ask everyone to ensure that mobile phones and other electronic devices are switched off.

We have only one item of business today. It is not normal for us to meet on a Thursday morning, but we are doing it to have an ev...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener Can I stop you there, minister? Someone’s phone is going off. I can hear it causing interference.

I am sorry about that, Mr Mundell.



Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener Thank you, minister. I start by asking about the proposed order under section 63 of the Scotland Act 1998. The committee is keen to have that before Parliament as quickly as possible so that we can get everything on a statutory footing. You have given a letter of comfort to local authorities, but ca...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener When the committee was established, I asked everyone for their perspectives on welfare reform and there was a unanimous view in the committee that welfare badly needed to be reformed, but there was also a view that it did not need to be reformed badly.

Tens of thousands of people have bee...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener If I could just correct you, minister, I did not say that it is entirely due to welfare reforms. I said that there is a link between the increase of use and the Welfare Reform Act 2012. I did not say that it is entirely down to that act, but a direct link between the increase in food bank use and th...

Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener That invitation is still extended to them all.



Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I think that your mailbag is going to be very busy.



Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I look forward to that.



Welfare Reform Committee 26 June 2014 : Thursday, June 26, 2014
The Convener I do not think that the discussion is best served by people talking over one another. One at a time, please.
