HC Deb 29 March 1909 vol 3 c153W

asked the Home Secretary if he will state the places with respect to which Section 111 (6) of the Children Act will take effect?


An order will be made under Section 111 (6) for the Metropolitan Police Court district, as the arrangements for establishing separate children's courts in London are not yet complete. There is, however, in force a good working arrangement for separating children's cases from other cases in the metropolitan police courts. No application has reached me from any other place for an order to postpone the operation of Section 111.
