HC Deb 24 July 1929 vol 230 cc1326-7W

asked the Home Secretary if it is the intention of the Government to introduce in the near future a Bill to amend the Children Act, 1908.


The Government are fully alive to the desirability of amending the Children Act, 1908, so as to bring it into closer harmony with modern ideas as to the treatment of the neglected and delinquent child, but can hold out no hope of legislation this Session.
