Continue encouragement to work from home

Continue encouragement to work from home

The Scottish Government should continue to encourage those who can to work from home instead of travelling to and from work.


For most people they can claim for heating and light, and added to not paying for travel costs, this can be beneficial financially. Difficult for some people looking after young children, and for those missing companionship albeit 2 metres apart.

The consequences of this recommendation also needs to be considered. This could place yet further pressure on rural housing, already in short supply due to holiday homes and lets, as wealthier city dwellers relocate to the countryside.
