HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 cc128-9W
Mr. de Freitas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he has taken on the resolution of the National Association of Probation Officers at their annual general meeting on 3rd May, a copy of which has been sent to him, calling on Her Majesty's Government to appoint a Departmental committee to consider the economic, social and legal disabilities of illegitimate children.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

I am giving consideration to this proposal, which is contained in a letter which I received on 22nd July.
