Scottish pilot projects: a clarification

The following paragraph has been published by the Citizen’s Basic Income Network Scotland:

For the avoidance of doubt:  Scotland has not yet started any Basic Income Pilot Projects.  Four Councils have expressed a wish to host such a project.

Before it can start, there must be a thorough planning stage which could take up to two years.  The Scottish Government has offered £250,000 as seed-corn finance to support the planning stage.  The planning stage will end with a proposal, for a unified BI project covering the four Councils, to be put to the Scottish Government.  If the SG agrees to the proposal, then the Project is likely to last two years, and it will take another year or so to collate and analyse the results.  This is a medium term endeavour, so no official results will be available for the immediate future.
