HC Deb 06 July 1960 vol 626 c43W
64. Mr. N. Pannell

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what were the number of coloured children and the total number of children in the care of the London County Council, the Middlesex County Council, the Liverpool Borough Council, the Nottingham Borough Council and the Birmingham Borough Council, respectively, at the 31st December, 1959, as compared with the figures for the 31st December, 1958.

Mr, R. A. Butler

This information is not available in the returns furnished by local authorities to the Home Office, and I regret that I should not feel justified in calling for special returns of coloured children in care. In any event, I understand that not all the authorities concerned could furnish the information.
