Plan needed for transfer of social security powers to Scotland, say MPs and MSPs

A joint letter has been issued by Holyrood’s social security committee and Westminster’s Scottish affairs committee. The letter calls for a clear plan to execute a successful transfer of welfare powers to Scotland.

The letter to the secretary of state for work and pensions, Damian Green, and the cabinet secretary for communities, social security and equalities, Angela Constance, follows the historic joint meetings of the two committees where they investigated how the devolution of social security was to be delivered.

The committees heard that not only was it vital that both governments had a clear plan for the transfer of powers but that the procedures for addressing any dispute between the two governments had to be strengthened.
