HC Deb 17 December 1975 vol 902 c658W
Mr. Bradley

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects the review of the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 to be completed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Roy Jenkins

A review of this legislation has been carried out within the Departments affected, and, together with my colleagues, I am studying its results in conjunction with the recommendations of the Employment and Social Services Sub-Committee of the Expenditure Committee under the chairmanship of my hon. Friend the Member for Wolverhampton, North-East (Mrs. Short). We hope to be able to report to Parliament in the fairly near future.
