HC Deb 19 May 1927 vol 206 c1401W
Viscountess ASTOR

asked the Home Secretary what action it is proposed to take to give effect to the recommendations of the two Departmental Committees appointed to study the questions of sexual offences against young persons and the treatment of young offenders?


The more important recommendations in these two Reports could not be carried into effect without legislation. The second Report, which covers a very wide field, was only presented to me at the end of March, and I am not yet in a position to make any definite statement.
