50-50 over child protection agency

child protection investigations.

The poll was split 50-50 on the question of a new agency proposed

professional posts described by Alan Milburn?

The health secretary told last week’s National Social Services
Conference that the role of general social worker was no longer
sustainable. To vote go to www.communitycare.co.uk
