HC Deb 28 February 1977 vol 927 cc9-10W
Mr. Moonman

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give an assurance that the Government do not intend to seek to lower the age of consent.

Mr. John

We have no present intentions to do so, but this subject is under review by the Policy Advisory Commit- tee on Sexual Offences and we would wish to await its advice before reaching any final decision.
