Children and Social Work Bill – now awaiting Royal Assent

The Children and Social Work Bill has passed all its Commons stages and is awaiting Royal Assent. The Bill was considered at Report Stage, Legislative Grand Committee, and Third Reading on Tuesday 7 March 2017. At Third Reading MPs reviewed the overall content of the Bill.

Children’s Minister Edward Timpson moved amendments to put relationships and sex education and personal, social, health and economic education on a statutory footing. The Government also removed clauses that would have allowed the Secretary of State to exempt local authorities from children’s social care regulations for up to three years in order to test new ways of working. The House of Lords will now consider the amendments made by the Commons.
