HC Deb 18 December 1979 vol 976 c171W
Mr. McElhone

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he intends to announce his conclusions on the Pack committee on truancy and indiscipline in schools as far as that report's recommendations relating to the power and procedures of children's hearings are concerned.

Mr. Fairgrieve

I intend to issue early in 1980 a consultative paper on the children's hearings system which will deal among other things with the recommendation of the Pack committee relating to children's hearings.
