§ 41. Mr. Bulmer
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what proportion of social workers currently employed have received professional training.
§ Mr. Alec Jones:
I assume that the Question refers to social workers in field work practice. At 30th September 1973, the latest date for which figures are available, 39 per cent. of social workers employed in local authority social services departments in England in this capacity were professionally qualified.
