§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will publish the cost estimates which have led him to reject the possibility of preparing a draft Bill to enact the Select Committee on Violence in the Family recommendation on a family court.
§ Mr. Davidson
I have been asked to reply.
No detailed estimates have been prepared. The right hon. Member will appreciate that the preparation of a draft Bill would require the provision for this pur- 428W pose of resources which are already otherwise committed.
