§ Mr. Biggs-Davison
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether he will arrange for the Oversea Migration Board to discuss with local authorities the emigration of children within their care.
§ Mr. Cledwyn Hughes
No. Local authorities are already aware that, with the consent of the Home Secretary, they may arrange for the emigration of a child in their care if they judge that emigration would be in the child's best long-term interest.
