HC Deb 02 March 1971 vol 812 c390W
70. Mr. Gurden

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will provide more than one place on the Training Council for Social Work for members of the Residential Child Care Association.

Mr. Alison

In view of the large number of interests to be represented on the new Central Council for Education and Training in Social Work, it has not been possible to allot more than one place to the Association. The importance of residential social work will, however, be fully recognised by other interests represented on the council, and will be taken into account by Ministers when the seven appointments reserved to them are made.
