Housing Information Progress – Recommendation 1

MOD advice and briefings relevant to Scotland

The Scottish Government should continue to work with the UK Government to ensure that online advice and briefings reflect housing policy and provision in Scotland, so that Service Leavers choosing to settle in Scotland are not disadvantaged. (This recommendation was pulled through from Recommendation 1 in the 2015 Transition Report.)
