From Mr Simon Cannell

Sir: Professor H. Prins (Letters, 5 August) confused training with statutory regulation. He rightly called for improved regulation of the social work profession.

We support his call for a General Social Services Council. However, our core task is still to set the standards and ensure the quality of social workers' training.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Cannell

Assistant Director

Education and Training in

Social Work
