Social work spokesman Eric Jackson said all Scotland's councils will comply with the instructions from the Social Work Inspection Agency's investigation*.
'I am positive that all councils and other agencies would accept that systems need looked at as a matter of urgency and will therefore comply with the minister's review. Councils will be determined to identify any potential problems and correct them in advance.
'However all that said, even with this review it has to be recognised that no system in the world is full-proof and that nobody will be able to eradicate the risk altogether.
'Councils identify risks in association with partners and do everything possible to protect the public but no system can eliminate risk completely.'
