Amendment on the right of redetermination and appeal on liability for overpayment

April 2018

In this briefing Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG), Inclusion Scotland, Citizens Advice Scotland, ENABLE Scotland, Shelter Scotland, the Poverty Alliance, One Parent Families Scotland and other members of the Scottish Campaign on Welfare Reform (SCoWR) strongly urge MSPs to support Amendment 137 to the Social Security (Scotland) Bill in the name of Jeremy Balfour MSP.

The amendment ensures individuals can appeal against a decision that they are liable for an overpayment of their entitlement.
