Chamber and committees

Question reference: S5W-06569

  • Asked by: Mike Rumbles, MSP for North East Scotland, Scottish Liberal Democrats
  • Date lodged: 25 January 2017
  • Current status: Answered by Humza Yousaf on 26 January 2017


To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on whether concessionary travel for people over 60 or with a disability should be (a) means tested, (b) a universal benefit, or (c) a national entitlement with a one-off fee.


In the coming months the Scottish Government will be consulting on ways in which to ensure the longer term sustainability of the Concessionary Travel Scheme, through initial engagement with stakeholders leading to a formal open and transparent public consultation later in the year.

I do not wish to pre-empt the conclusions of those discussions.
