COMMENT: delays to the transfer of social security powers to Scotland


Commenting on delays to the transfer of social security powers to Scotland Scottish Labour Social Security spokesperson Pam Duncan-Glancy said: “It’s clear the relationship between Scotland’s two governments has descended into chaos once again, leaving the SNP’s promise to deliver a fairer, functioning Scottish social security system in tatters.

“Every day that this programme is delayed is another day that disabled people and carers are left at the mercy of a Tory-run DWP.

“For years the SNP have rightly blasted this callous Tory system, but their decision to keep handing powers back to the DWP exposes this as nothing but hollow rhetoric.

“The SNP government have the powers to fix this – they just need to use them.” ENDS Notes
