47. This data was provided by SCRA.

48. This data was provided by the SCTS.

49. This data is from Children's Hearings Scotland (CHS). It comes from reports from Area Support Teams (AST) from 7 April – 6 May and from 7 May onwards, data is drawn from survey of Panel Members feedback on hearings in which they participated and from AST reports. 317 responses were received, of which 276 were completed in full and 41 completed in part. It should be noted that the survey responses do not reflect reports on 100% of hearings. However, the National Convener also required AST to report when the powers have been used.

50. For the second reporting period, CHS introduced a new survey collecting information on the composition of panels at hearings. Returns reporting on 826 hearings were received.

51. The data for the third reporting period is a combination of responses to the survey on the composition of panels at hearings, and AST notifications to the National Convener of when the powers have been used.

52. The data on this provision and all of the children's hearings provisions that follow is from the SCRA. Its case management system was not set up for recording the detail of this legislation so generating figures has been complex. To enable SCRA to provide accurate totals for the three periods, it has had to re-run period one and period two data. This has resulted in small changes in some of the figures as the report is based on live operational data which will be subject to change over time. SCRA's live operational data is regularly adjusted by staff‎ when issues with data integrity become apparent and as cases progress. This is especially prevalent in SCRA data where the time between the reporting period and the production of the report is short.
