To ask the Scottish Government how much of the cost of each baby box will be attributed to the (a) box, (b) mattress and (c) other contents.


Answered by Mark McDonald (14/06/2017):

The Unit Cost per box is £160. That covers the cost of all the contents of the box. Due to the imminent procurement exercise for year 2 of Scotland’s Baby Box, the itemised value/cost of any item is currently commercially sensitive. Once that exercise is concluded, we will review the efficacy and sensitivity of providing itemised costs and if appropriate, provide further information in due course.
