HC Deb 11 July 1928 vol 219 cc2259-60W

asked the Home Secretary whether any definite lines of policy were agreed upon as a result of the conference held under his auspices on 2nd July to consider the best means of assisting and protecting girls who come to London from the provinces to work; and will he issue a report on the conference?


Yes, Sir, the conference approved the establishment of a Central Information Bureau to supply information to girls coming to London, and the distribution of information in the provinces as to facilities available in London for the welfare of girls coming up to work. At the request of the conference I am nominating a committee to carry out these proposals, utilising in so doing existing organisations. As the above reply embodies the decisions of the conference, I do not think it is necessary to issue a report.
