HC Deb 30 October 1947 vol 443 cc123-4W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the estimated cost to the taxpayer and how many persons, men and women, will be employed in the new scheme for caring for children who have not the benefit of home life.

Mr. Ede

I should not feel justified in giving estimates of the kind referred to in advance of the introduction of legislation designed to secure improved standards of care of children deprived of a normal home life.
