HC Deb 01 November 1994 vol 248 c1089W
Mr. Michael Brown

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what decision she has reached on the selection of consultants to undertake work on the definition of standards of conduct and practice in social work.

Mr. Bowis

I am pleased to announce that two short separate projects have been commissioned. One is from Price Waterhouse Management Consultants, the other is a joint project by the National Institute for Social Work, North Down and Ards community trust and Eastern health and social services board, Northern Ireland. These two projects will examine the issues from different perspectives.

The result of both projects will be reported to the Department of Health in the early months of next year.
