asked the Minister of Education how many child guidance clinics have been set up under local education authorities; and how many such authorities use the services of a qualified psychiatrist for the purpose of helping difficult and delinquent children.
§ Miss Ellen Wilkinson:
There are 66 child guidance clinics provided by local education authorities, and 49 other authorities have established a child guidance service using clinics provided by voluntary bodies or other local education authorities. In all these cases the services of qualified psychiatrists are available.
