HC Deb 26 July 1951 vol 491 cc75-6W
31. Mr. Hastings

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the many cases of cruelty to children in their own homes that have been reported recently; and what steps he is taking to secure early notification so that preventive action may be taken before irrevocable damage has occurred.

Mr. Ede

I have nothing to add to previous answers given to my hon. Friend. A comprehensive account of the steps taken to deal with children neglected in their own homes will be found in the recently issued Report of the Children's Department.
