The Scottish Commission on Social Security (SCoSS) welcomes the opportunity to comment on the Disability Assistance for Children and Young People (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2021 (referred to henceforth as ‘the draft Regulations’).
This report has been prepared in advance of the Social Justice and Social Security Committee’s consideration of the draft Regulations so that it is available, if helpful, to support and inform MSPs future scrutiny of the draft Regulations.
Our report has been completed in accordance with the Commission’s pre-legislative scrutiny function, set out in sections 22 and 97 of the Social Security (Scotland) Act 2018. Section 97 states that the Commission must report on draft Regulations proposed to be made under any section in Chapter 2 of Part 2 of the Act. The draft Regulations are made under powers conferred by sections within this part and chapter.
