HC Deb 11 June 1979 vol 968 cc35-6W
Mr. Dewar

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has any plans to review the working of part III of the Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Fairgrieve

My right hon. Friend proposes to examine the present statutory provisions carefully, in consultation with interested parties, with a view to identifying how best the powers and procedures of children's hearings might be strengthened.
