Social Security Committee 10 October 2019 [Draft] : 10 dhen Dàmhair 2019


Keith Brown

I hope that, in that context, the Scottish Government would take the broadest possible interpretation of measures that were taken by the UK Government that had the effect of increasing deman...



Social Security Committee 10 October 2019 [Draft] : 10 dhen Dàmhair 2019


Keith Brown

I have another point, unrelated to the last one. We have a lot of discussions in the committee about the effect of actions of one Government—either the Scottish Government or the UK Governme...



Social Security Committee 10 October 2019 [Draft] : 10 dhen Dàmhair 2019


Keith Brown

I will go back to the discussion about the Scottish welfare fund. To me, it seems axiomatic that, if the UK Government reduces or further constrains social security payments, that is bound t...



Social Security Committee 10 October 2019 [Draft] : 10 dhen Dàmhair 2019


Keith Brown

If CPIH is a measure that includes owner-occupier housing costs, that seems both flawed and likely to penalise those parts of the UK that have lower levels of owner occupation. We have seen ...



Social Security Committee 10 October 2019 [Draft] : 10 dhen Dàmhair 2019

Keith Brown (Clackmannanshire and Dunblane) (SNP)

Mr Gibson mentioned role models, which gives me the opportunity to refer to Chelsea Raymond, who is at the University of Stirling in my constituency and who recen...



Social Security Committee 26 September 2019 [Draft] : 26 dhen t-Sultain 2019


Keith Brown

For clarity, with regard to my request for written information, I am asking specifically about an indirect action from the Scottish Government. It seems to me tha...



Social Security Committee 26 September 2019 [Draft] : 26 dhen t-Sultain 2019


Keith Brown

My point is that the complexity of the system itself might, to some extent, account for the lack of public interest. I do not kn...



Social Security Committee 26 September 2019 [Draft] : 26 dhen t-Sultain 2019


Keith Brown (Clackmannanshire and Dunblane) (SNP)

It is pretty obvious from the discussion how complex the system is. Susan Rice started by taking a bird’s-eye view. I am just thinking back to Adam Smith’s exposi...



Meeting of the Parliament 26 September 2019 [Draft] : 26 dhen t-Sultain 2019


Keith Brown

Does the minister agree that this latest delay and the substantial and lengthy line of expensive delays to other UK Government infrastructure projects—including h...
