Social Security Benefits: Wales

Question for Wales Office

UIN 900102, tabled on 19 May 2021

What assessment he has made of the potential merits of proposals to devolve aspects of the benefits system to Wales in line with those powers devolved to Scotland.

Answered on

19 May 2021

None. Devolution of the benefits system is not an issue that is raised on the doorsteps of Wales and even the Welsh Government has not asked for powers equivalent to Scotland.
