The Social Work Inspection Agency in Scotland (SWIA) published An Inspection into the Care and Protection of Children in Eilan Siar, Edinburgh: Scottish Executive. The Western Isles Child Protection Committee requested the inspection following the arrest of 13 adults in October 2003 in relation to the alleged abuse of three children. The SWIA made 31 recommendations. Some had implications for all local authorities, NHS Boards and all agencies that dealt with the protection of children. Others were directly aimed at the Scottish Executive.
