To ask the First Minister what the Scottish Government's response is to reports that the UK Government plans to halt the full roll-out of universal credit.


Current Status: Taken in the Chamber on 10/01/2019

To ask the Scottish Government how it anticipates the economy will perform in 2019.


Answered by Derek Mackay (27/09/2018):

The Scottish Government is focused on building on Scotland's strong economic foundations, supporting businesses to stimulate growth, jobs and investment.

The latest economic data show the Scottish economy has grown 0.8% in the first half of 2018, outpacing both the Scottish Fiscal Commission forecast and UK growth. Unemployment continues to fall, and the number of people in work is at a near record high.

However, Brexit uncertainty remains the key risk to the economic outlook for 2019, with the UK Government’s proposals for a hard Brexit and the continued risk of no deal at all, representing a key threat to our economy.
