§ Mrs. Chalker
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish the terms of reference and duties of children's regional planning committees and a statement of their work with the local authorities since reorganisation in 1974.
§ Mr. Moyle
The duties of children's regional planning committees are set out in Sections 19, 36 and 37 of the Children and Young Persons Act 1969. They have no formal terms of reference as such. The work of these committees in the period 1973–1975 is described in the triennial report on "Social Services for Children in England and Wales" (House of Commons Paper No. 68). The period 1976–1978 will be included in a subsequent triennial report due to be published in 1979.
