That's all from Holyrood Live on Tuesday 23 April 2019.
Social Security Secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville told MSPs the Scottish government could not afford to alleviate all of Westminster's "staggering" cuts in benefits spending.
Ms Somerville said £125m of Scottish government cash was going towards mitigating reductions in welfare spending imposed by the Conservatives in London.
She warned work being done by the SNP administration to try to help poorer families could be at risk if ministers in Edinburgh limited their ambition to merely "mitigating the decisions another government".
Ms Somerville spoke out as MSPs debated a report by Holyrood's Social Security Committee on the impact of the introduction of the Universal Credit system.
