About the Panel
Along with two other committees of the Parliament, the Social Security Committee established an External Experts Panel to assist it with its work. The Panel’s experts provided advice to MSPs on a range of subjects relevant to the Committee’s remit. The Panel operated as a pilot until the start of summer recess in 2018. The Panel was a joint initiative with the Centre on Constitutional Change, based at the University of Edinburgh.
