Beti Jones obituary

There's an interesting obituary in today's Herald which records the life and career of Beti Jones, who became the first Chief Adviser of Social Work to the Scottish Office in 1968. Her appointment followed the passing of the Social Work (Scotland) Act by the then Labour Scottish Secretary, Willie Ross, which created local authority social work departments and removed the ordeal of children attending adult courts by establishing Children's Hearings, or Panels.
