An interesting tweet yesterday from the Tory MP for Stirling, complete with dubiously edited video, claiming he got no answers to a question about what the Scottish government is doing with its benefit powers.
In 2016, the Scots Gov received considerable powers over application of benefits.
In the #SocialSecurity debate, I got no answer to my repeated question: what are the SNP Govt doing with these powers? These powers should be used before they blame UK Govt. #PMQs pic.twitter.com/hQ4Hku0tty

Let’s just take a peek at what the official record has about this exchange:
Oh look it’s answer to your question from Neil Gray. Hopefully that refreshes your memory Stephen, I’m sure you didn’t deliberately set out to mislead and misinform.
