Shelter Scotland written evidence on the general principles of the Child Poverty (Scotland) Bill (March 2017)
Shelter Scotland welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the Land Rights and Responsibilities Statement and the Government’s general focus on land reform. As the statement clearly emphasises, the a desire to reduce inequality and poverty and to increase the wellbeing of everyone in Scotland should be central to the Scottish Government’s commitment to land reform. Not only does Scotland’s housing have an immense impact on our economy, as the financial crisis clearly demonstrated, it also impacts the Scottish population’s health and wellbeing.
