HC Deb 08 June 1931 vol 253 cc632-3W

asked the Home Secretary when he hopes to be able to introduce the Bill amending the procedure of the trial of children and young persons under the Summary Jurisdiction Acts; and whether he intends to-incorporate in such Bill provisions for the proof of service of summonses by certification instead of by personal attendance or declaration, as at present?


The question of procedure in juvenile courts will be dealt with in the Children Bill. I am unable to make any statement at present as to when the Bill can be introduced. The point mentioned in the second part of the question will be borne in mind.
