The Poverty and Inequality Commission: form, remit and appointments

A paper from the Scottish Government setting out the form and remit of the Commission, and appointments made to date.

Reporting and Outputs

Commission meetings, except when the Commission chooses to meet in private, will be minuted and a note published on the Scottish Government website to ensure transparency and openness. We would envisage the Commission will also host an annual public meeting, and meet to discuss their work with a relevant parliamentary committee, eg the Social Security Committee which scrutinised the Child Poverty (Scotland) Bill.

Learning and recommendations flowing from all work streams undertaken will be published and actively disseminated.
