HC Deb 28 June 1962 vol 661 cc1344-5
20. Mr. Willey

asked the Minister of Education whether he will make provision for the publication of an annual report by the Youth Service Development Council.

Sir D. Eccles

No, Sir. I think the best arrangement is to describe developments in the youth service in a separate section of the Ministry's Annual Report.

Mr. Willey

I appreciate that, and also the usefulness of the bulletins on the Youth Service, but will the Minister consider the matter again? Does not he think that the work of this Council would be much encouraged if it had the power to make an annual report? This would make it much more difficult to cut the provision for the Youth Service.

Sir D. Eccles

I am ready to discuss the question of an annual report with the Council, but this matter has not been raised by the Council. As I am Chairman, I would be aware if it had been raised.
