I thank the cabinet secretary for advance sight of her statement. Scottish Greens, too, will commit to work with the Government to ensure that the scheme is a success.

In her statement, the cabinet secretary said that Young Scot is working with the Government to ensure that young people “will have a genuine voice” and can “contribute directly” as the guarantee requires. I welcome that. Can she say more about the governance in that regard and the extent to which that contribution will be on-going, meaningful and significant?
