ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move of a government to strengthen up inspection for children's services in the wake of the Baby P case. According to Michael Hart, Ofsted's director of children's services, the recent tragic events would be taken into account in the introduction of the comprehensive area assessment for councils. Hart said that the joint area review of Haringey in 2006 involving an inspection had raised concerns about protection while the 2007 assessment was a paper based exercise.
