Part of Adoption and Children Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 11:30 am on 20 November 2001.

Alert me about debates like this

The Association respectfully suggests that there are very significant financial implications for local authorities in trying to comply with the requirements and expectations contained within this Bill. Local authorities will not be in a position to meet these requirements unless sufficient funding is provided by Central Government. In addition local authorities are all faced with a serious shortfall of trained social workers to undertake the work which is expected of us.
