Meeting of the Parliament 04 December 2019 [Draft] : 04 dhen Dùbhlachd 2019


Bob Doris

Meeting of the Parliament 04 December 2019 [Draft] : 04 dhen Dùbhlachd 2019


Bob Doris (Glasgow Maryhill and Springburn) (SNP)

I will focus on two areas of the debate: making Scotland fairer for children who are living in poverty and wider issues around benefit take-up. In doing so, I wil...



Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 dhen t-Samhain 2019


The Convener

It has certainly been a thought-provoking and interesting evidence session. I thank both witnesses for their time and for giving evidence.



Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 dhen t-Samhain 2019

Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 dhen t-Samhain 2019

Social Security Committee 28 November 2019 [Draft] : 28 dhen t-Samhain 2019
