§ Lord Balniel
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will set up a working party to review the law relating to the protection of children whose care and maintenance are undertaken for reward by people who are not relatives or guardians, so as to take account of experience gained by the local authorities since 1958.
§ Miss Bacon
The Department and its inspectors keep in close touch with local authorities and their children's officers about the operation of the Act, and my right hon. and learned Friend is ready to consider any suggestions by the authorities or their associations for improving the law.
