§ 52. Mrs. Ewing
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the existing police juvenile liaison schemes established in Greenorb, Stirling; and what plans he has to assist 76W the extension of such schemes to other towns.
§ Mr. Buchan
In addition to Renfrew and Bute and Stirling and Clackmannan Police Forces, juvenile liaison schemes are operated by Argyll, Ayrshire, Inverness, and Perth and Kinross Forces. I welcome experimentation in police methods to prevent crime. Police juvenile liaison and similar schemes are, however, essentially matters for local initiative.
