HC Deb 01 February 1974 vol 868 c194W
Mr. Money

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will take steps to increase the number of secure remand places in suitable institutions for female juveniles.

Sir K. Joseph

Local authorities are responsible for providing suitable accommodation for girls under 17 who are remanded to their care. I have approved regional plans which contain proposals by local authorities for providing additional secure accommodation for these girls.
