IPPR launches report on Devo More and welfare

14th March 2014

The Institute for Public Policy Research has launched its report on Devo more and welfare: Devolving benefits and policy for a stronger union. The report considers both the practical and policy problems with devolving some or all aspects of welfare, and the reasons why devolving some aspects of it would be a good – and union-reinforcing – thing to do.

Focusing on the Scottish case, the research presents a set of recommendations that would enable each of the UK's devolved governments to deliver better social and economic outcomes for their electorates, while continuing to benefit from UK-wide risk-pooling.
The report can be downloaded in full from the IPPR's website.
