HC Deb 08 October 1924 vol 177 c530W
Duchess of ATHOLL

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he is now prepared to set up a Committee to inquire into the question of assaults and other sexual offences committed against children in Scotland?


I am considering the question whether such a Committee of Inquiry should be appointed, but I am not at present in a position to make any statement on the subject. Before reaching a decision, I shall carefully consider a memorandum which was recently sent to me by the noble lady.
