§ Mr. Ede
I beg to move, in page 54, line 42, after "aforesaid," to insert:or(b) in the conduct of research into the causes of delinquency and the treatment of offenders, and matters connected therewith,In Committee my hon. Friend the Member for Taunton (Mr. Collins) moved a new Clause to give power to the Secretary of State to conduct research or assist research into the causation and prevention of crime. The principle of the Clause was accepted and it was withdrawn on my undertaking to draft Amendments to Clause 68 which would give the necessary power. These Amendments fulfil that undertaking.

Further Amendment made: In page 55, line 30, at end, to insert:
(f) towards the expenditure of any body or person approved by the Secretary of State in the conduct of research into the causes of delinquency and the treatment of offenders, and matters connected therewith."—[Mr. Ede.]
§ Clause, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill.
