HC Deb 16 July 1941 vol 373 c624W
Mr. Muff

asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the great need for more remand homes for juveniles in the West Riding; and what actual steps are in progress to increase the number of these homes in this district?

Mr. H. Morrison

I am informed that the West Riding County Council at a meeting to be held to-day will be recommended to approve the purchase and acquisition of premises to take 50 boys on remand, which will be large enough to meet the estimated needs of the other local authorities of the district which have not already established remand homes.
