HC Deb 02 November 1973 vol 863 cc22-3W
Mr. Cordle

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether the Government will consider legislation to protect au pair girls from exploitation, or at least to provide some guidelines for those who employ them.

Mr. Lane

General guidance is already provided in the Home Office au pair leaflets which are issued to au pair girls and their hostesses. I am not convinced that there is a case for legislation, but I am keeping the matter under review. If my hon. Friend has in mind any specific case, and will send me particulars, I will look into it.
