The support of Reform Scotland on the proposal and debate around the basic income is welcome and comes at a time when the idea is now receiving widespread attention.
This is one of the reasons the Scottish Government have committed funding to support the four local authorities as they aim to design a pilot scheme.
There is a growing awareness and interest in the idea of a basic income, so any debate we can contribute to is worthwhile – we will continue to discuss the concept of a basic income and working with those who also wish to do so.
We should be hugely proud that Scotland is leading the way in the evolution of this important debate.
