§ Mr. David Steel
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has received any representations from the Association of Directors of Social Work regarding the payment of rent by 16-year-olds in residential care who are not in remunerative employment in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Younger
I have received no such representations. In relation to the relevant statutory provisions, I refer the right hon. Member to the answer which I gave him on 9 July.—[Vol. 27, c.229.].
