HC Deb 16 February 1968 vol 758 cc425-6W
Lord Balniel

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the number of established posts for residential child care staff in residential nurseries, children's homes and hostels, respectively; and what was the number of such staff actually employed by children's departments, at the latest available date.

Mr. Taverne:

The Association of Children's Officers informed the Central the need for new parliamentary accommodation.

Mr. Crossman:

Proposals for a new parliamentary building are under consideration by the Select Committee on House of Commons (Services). The question of an open architectural competition is one of the many matters which is being discussed with the Minister of Public Building and Works.
