The Scottish Governments response to the consultation on the Universal Credit (Claims and Payments) (Scotland) Regulations 2017

Executive Summary

The Scottish Government ran a consultation between 16 January and 13 March 2017 seeking views on draft regulations on Universal Credit which would give Scottish applicants more power and choice over the way their Universal Credit payments are made. We received 100 responses to the consultation and made a number of changes to the regulations based on respondents' views and these are set out in this Government response.
