UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “Ill-conceived government plans to remove statutory duties protecting children should never have been put forward.

“Social workers recognised the danger of removing decades of child protection law, it’s a pity ministers didn’t bother to ask them about the risks posed by the proposals.

“The Lords have seen sense and voted against removing essential protection for children.”
