Brock Report Recommendations Oral Question, 29/01/15 [S]

During First Ministers Question Time on 29 January 2015 Liam McArthur (LD) asked the First Minister what progress has been made in implementing the recommendations in Jackie Brockís report on closing the gaps in the child protection process.

The First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, replied the Government welcomes the Brock report and we have accepted all its recommendations. We are implementing the 12 recommendations, including holding a national strategic leadership summit, which will take place next month.

The report was one strand of a wider programme that seeks to ensure that Scotlandís approach to safeguarding children and young people continues to be as robust as possible. A parliamentary briefing note on the progress of the Scottish Governmentís response to the Brock report will be available from the Scottish Parliament information centre today. We will continue to act decisively to implement the reportís recommendations.

For the full answer to this and any subsidiary questions see the Scottish Parliament Official Report 29 January 2015 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
