This morning Keith chaired the Overview & Scrutiny Committee on Vulnerable Children.
It covered a wide range of subjects, fostering, recruitment & retention of Social Workers, financial monitoring and performance monitoring. Some of it became quite technical. John Hemming MP is a member and brings a lot of national experience to the table. The meeting lasted 3 hours and even then we had to put off a discussion about whether people who smoke should become foster parents. If anyone has any views please feel free to express them.
