§ 52. Mr. Hannan
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what proposals he has for dealing with the need to recruit and train child care officers for the staffing of children's homes, and assistance to children's departments of local authorities.
§ Mr. Millan
There are at present in Scotland six courses providing training at various levels in the residential care of children, and five courses providing training for child care officers in the field. Proposals for several further courses are under consideration. Recruitment is a matter for each local authority, but my child care inspectorate assists in any way it can.
