HC Deb 24 June 1958 vol 590 c231
34. Mrs. Mann

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware of the Ingleby Committee's terms of reference and work concerning juvenile courts, remand homes, approved schools, and prevention of cruelty to, and exposure to moral danger of, juveniles; and why such a committee has not been set up for Scotland.

Mr. Maclay

I am aware of the Committee's terms of reference. The Scottish Advisory Council on Child Care has already explored part of this field; and I intend to seek the Council's advice on any recommendations made by the Ingleby Committee which fall within its province and are relevant to Scotland.

Mrs. Mann

Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind the overcrowded remand homes, the overcrowded approved schools and the overcrowded Borstals of Scotland and take some action along the lines recommended by the Ingleby Committee?

Mr. Maclay

I have listened to the hon. Lady's supplementary question carefully and I will consider it very carefully.
