3. Extent/Level of EQIA required
As a result of the initial evidence gathering and consideration of the proposals laid out in the Bill there will have to be a full EQIA conducted.
The evidence and statistical analysis at this stage has been drawn from a broad range of sources. Statistics have mainly been gathered from the Scottish Household Survey 2019, third party research reports and from the two consultations that were published on the Bill in 2019 and 2021. The larger consultation published in 2019 received 307 responses – representations were made from 127 from individuals and 180 from organisations across the Third Sector. The second consultation, undertaken to further develop and refine the proposals published in 2021 addressed the fact that some of the responses in the original 2019 survey highlighted areas where greater consideration and discussion was needed before the Scottish Government could decide on the next steps. This received 100 responses from the sector.
