HC Deb 06 March 1935 vol 298 c1945
62. Mr. TURTON

asked the Home Secretary whether he will issue a, circular to all benches of magistrates to the effect that, when a child is charged jointly with an adult, the provisions of the Children and Young Persons Act of 1933 relating to proceedings in court shall be observed?


If my hon. Friend will let me know what particular provisions he refers to, I will consider his suggestion.


May I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman does not think it a grave anomaly that if a child is charged with an offence the name and address is not given, while if the child is charged jointly with an adult there is no check upon publicity?
