HC Deb 13 July 1910 vol 19 c351
Captain WARING

asked the Lord Advocate whether there have been any prosecutions in Scotland under Section 118 of The Children Act, 1908; and whether, since the passage of that Act, the number of children of wandering tinkers attending school regularly in Scotland has increased?


The answer to the first portion of the question is in the affirmative. No statistics are yet available on the second point, but such information as is available points to the usefulness of the Section referred to by my hon. Friend.
