Social Services Department Of Hillingdon Borough Council

EDM number 777 in 1997-98, proposed by John Wilkinson on 11/02/1998.

That this House notes with deep concern the thorough report of the Social Services Inspectorate into the Social Services Department of Labour-controlled Hillingdon Borough Council which is highly critical of the failure of the Department to ensure the implementation of child protection regulations thereby putting children in care greatly at risk leading in two disturbing cases to unacceptable levels of abuse; further notes that the Chairman of the Social Services Committee has resigned from Hillingdon Borough Council; and urges the Council as a whole to take responsibility for the Department's culture of chaos and helplessness and to initiate immediate remedial action within the Department.

This motion has been signed by a total of 8 MPs.
