Dame Joan Vickers

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action he is taking in regard to signing the Council of Europe Au Pair Agreement; and when the contract of employment will be produced.

Mr. Sharples

My right hon. Friend is in sympathy with the purposes of the agreement, and consultations are taking place between the Departments concerned. My right hon. Friend cannot yet make a statement about signature of the agreement, or say when a standard form of agreement forau pair girls will be introduced.
