To ask the Scottish Government when it anticipates that students, who are in receipt of benefits, will receive a special support payment to ensure that they do not lose out due to being in receipt of, or entitled to, student support.
Work on the Special Support Payment has commenced and is in the initial stages of development and a timeline for introduction will be detailed in due course. We remain committed to introducing the Special Support Payment within the parliamentary term.
