On April 4th, the Lords debated the Children and Social Work Bill and passed amendments so that the Bill now includes:

  • Provision for children in England to be placed in secure accommodation in Scotland, and children from Scotland to be placed in England
  • Provision for relationships education in primary schools
  • Provision for relationships and sex education to be provided (instead of sex education) to secondary school pupils

The Bill is now awaiting Royal Assent to become an Act of Parliament.
