The Scottish Parlament's Welfare Reform Committee has issued a Call for Evidence on the Bill intended to place the Scottish welfare fund (SWF) on a permanent footing from 2015.

Our response welcomes the Bill but raises concerns with soem aspects of the Bill, drawing on evidence from our advice line about the operation of the interim SWF. You can read the full response here.
