The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Scotland and I have met the Chief Executive of Citizens Advice Scotland on several occasions to discuss a range of welfare and employment related issues. Most recently, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State met the Chief Executive on 11 March 2015, alongside other members of the Scottish Leaders Welfare and Benefits Group. The meeting discussed the work of that group and the migration from Disability Living Allowance to Personal Independence Payments. UK Government officials in the Scotland Office and other departments are also in regular contact with Citizens Advice Scotland on a number of areas.
