HC Deb 05 August 1965 vol 717 cc392-3W
Dr. Wyndham Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress has been made in implementing the Ingleby Committee Report of 1960 in arranging for the detection of families at risk to give them and their children special care and attention.

Miss Bacon

I would refer the hon. Member to my reply of 1st July to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton, East (Mr. Robert Howarth) in which I indicated that the reports furnished by local authorities about measures under Section 1 of the Children and Young Persons Act, 1963, show that co-ordination between statutory and voluntary services is being strengthened, staffs are being expanded, family advice centres are being set up, and schemes of various kinds for assisting families at risk are being developed.
