The Scottish Government's definition of "fairness" as applied to its policies and intentions.
The Scottish Government has not formally outlined a definition of 'fairness', as this is subject to the lens, or context, to which it is attributed. The specific considerations are explored further within the attributable policy.
Within the Fairer Scotland Action Plan a fairer Scotland was described as "one with low levels of poverty and inequality, genuine equality of opportunity, stronger life chances, and support for all those who need it."
The Scottish Government is committed to publishing all information released in response to Freedom of Information requests. View all FOI responses at http://www.gov.scot/foi-responses
