Meeting of the Parliament 17 May 2017 [Draft] : 17 May 2017


Angela Constance

I have to advise members that we have had no response at all from the UK Government. As we all know, the rape clause is a fundamental violation of human rights. It is disgraceful that, despi...

The Cabinet Secretary for Communities, Social Security and Equalities (Angela Constance)

Meeting of the Parliament 17 May 2017 [Draft] : 17 May 2017

Meeting of the Parliament 17 May 2017 [Draft] : 17 May 2017


Angela Constance

Mr Sarwar is, of course, aware that in phase 1 of the campaign we made a modest value-for-money investment. Our investment in benefit take-up campaigns will increase over this session of Par...



Meeting of the Parliament 17 May 2017 [Draft] : 17 May 2017


The Cabinet Secretary for Communities, Social Security and Equalities (Angela Constance)

We will have a rolling programme of activity over the course of the parliamentary session. The next phase will focus on young carers. During carers week, which runs from 12 to 18 June, we wi...



Meeting of the Parliament 17 May 2017 [Draft] : 17 May 2017


Angela Constance

Meeting of the Parliament 17 May 2017 [Draft] : 17 May 2017


Angela Constance
