HC Deb 29 April 1926 vol 194 cc2180-1

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Departmental Committee on Juvenile Delinquency first met; how many meetings have been held; and when it is anticipated that the Report will be received?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

The first meeting of the Committee was held on the 20th January, 1925, and the Committee have met on 49 occasions. The field of inquiry is a large one but I understand that the Committee is likely to present its Report in the autumn.
