HC Deb 02 December 1963 vol 685 c137W
Mr. Mapp

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proposals he has for training additional social workers to enable local authorities to carry out their obligations under the Children and Young Persons Act.

Mr. Woodhouse

The Central Training Council in Child Care has been actively engaged in expanding the training facilities for child care officers. It is expected that about 190 students will qualify in 1964 as compared with 68 in 1961, and arrangements are being made for further increases.
