HC Deb 26 June 1989 vol 155 c319W
Mr. Hinchliffe

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if his Department's boarding out of children regulations require agencies arranging placements to make provision for the insurance of foster parents.

Mr. Mellor

Agencies are required under the Boarding-Out of Children (Foster Placement) Regulations 1989 to inform foster parents of the agency's arrangements for meeting any legal liabilities of a foster parent arising by reason of the placement. We expect that agencies will make effective arrangements: A number of options are suggested in the handbook of guidance issued in association with the regulations.
