HC Deb 08 July 1974 vol 876 cc385-6W
Mr. Teddy Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many children appeared before children's panels in 1973; in how many cases the panels decided that the children should be detained in List D schools or other establishments, put under supervision or otherwise dealt with, respectively; and if he will give comparable figures for each of the previous four years.

Mr. William Ross

Figures for 1973 are not yet available. Figures for the two previous years are contained in "Scottish Social Work Statistics" for 1971 and 1972. Children's hearings were brought into operation on 15th April 1971.
