BENEFIT claimants who do not think they get enough cash will be able to take the Scottish Government to court under the new devolved social security system.
MSPs will also be able to create new benefits in devolved areas and top-up UK-wide benefits.
The Scottish Government has said it wants the system to have “dignity and respect at its heart” after repeated clashes over clampdowns by the UK Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
The Scottish Government is also drafting a “claimant’s charter” which will create a legal duty to respect the “human rights” of claimants.
A spokesman said: “Dignity and respect is at the heart of our social security policy – a contrast to the approach the UK Government is taking, which is pushing more vulnerable people into poverty as their appalling management continues to lead to delays in payments and increased reliance on food banks.
