HC Deb 28 November 1938 vol 342 cc49-50W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the case of the boy of 13 years of age who, having admitted he had caused the death of a four-year-old girl, was acquitted of murder by reason of his age; whether any sort of supervisory control was then imposed in his case; and, if so, of what nature?

Mr. Lloyd

I am informed that this boy was brought before a juvenile court on the 24th November under Section 61 of the Children and Young Persons Act, 1933, as being in need of care or protection and has been ordered to be sent to an approved school.
