SVC Recommendation 17: Parliamentary Scrutiny of Veterans Issues
The Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work should in due course report the progress made against implementing the recommendations in this report (and my two previous reports) to the Scottish Parliament. The aim should be to raise the profile of veterans issues amongst Parliamentarians and provide them with the information necessary to scrutinise the Scottish Government’s work in this field.
Scottish Government update:
There is no longer a Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work. The Veterans Minister now provides an annual autumn update to the Scottish Parliament on progress made against all four reports. A number of SG Cabinet Secretaries and Ministers now have responsibility for delivering against the recommendations.
SVC evaluation of status:
Implemented, but work should continue
