HC Deb 28 July 1959 vol 610 c35W
23. Mr. N. McLean

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has yet decided, following his recent consultations with representatives of Youth Service in Scotland, to establish a committee to consider the needs of the service.

Mr. Maclay

I have decided to set up a Standing Consultative Council for Youth Service with the following remitTo secure the greatest possible measure of consultation and co-ordination, both nationally and locally, among the statutory authorities and voluntary organisations engaged in youth service, and to promote the development of the service.

The Council will be representative of the statutory and voluntary bodies working in this field, and I shall announce its membership as soon as possible.
