The article reports on the plans of the Scottish government to contour efficiently the 40-year-old children's hearing system in the region. It is inferred that the government is planning to merge the panels, advisory committees and safeguard panels, as well as the Scottish Children's Reporters Administration into a single governing body, called the Scottish Children's Hearing Agency.
