Section 16: Directions In Relation To Children's Services Planning

152. A local authority, relevant health board and "other service provider" (as defined in section 7(1)) must comply with any direction issued by Scottish Ministers about children's services planning. Those directions may relate to any of the functions conferred by Part 3 (process, review, etc.), other than complying with section 12 (implementation of Children's Services Plans).

153. Directions may be issued under the powers provided to Scottish Ministers by sections 16(1) and 17(2) of the Act.

154. Before issuing, revising or revoking a direction, Scottish Ministers must consult with any person or organisation to which it relates (i.e. local authorities, health boards, etc.) and any other persons they consider appropriate.
