About the Inquiry
The Scottish Parliament’s Social Security Committee has launched an inquiry into Social Security Support for Housing. The remit of the inquiry is to explore how social security support for housing costs is impacted by welfare reform, with a particular focus on the local housing allowance and Universal Credit housing costs. The Committee will consider how both reserved and devolved social security policy can address issues arising for tenants and landlords, particularly in the private rented sector.
The Committee issued a call for written views on 5 February 2019.
