Date lodged: 3 March 2017
To ask the Scottish Government, further to the statement by the Minister for Childcare and Early Years on 2 March 2017 (Official Report, c. 46), when the "evaluation of the early work" of the programme of action on neglect will be reported to him, and whether these findings will be put in the public domain.
Answered by: Mark McDonald 16 March 2017
The Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children, based at the University of Strathclyde, will provide a report to me on the early findings of the programme of action on neglect in the pilot sites, by 31 March 2017. These findings will be placed in the public domain.
