To ask the Scottish Government how many baby boxes have been distributed in (a) Dundee and (b) the NHS Tayside area, in each year since the initiative was launched.


Registration opened on 15 June 2017, and delivery of Baby Boxes nationwide began on 15 August 2017 for all babies born and resident in Scotland.
