HC Deb 01 July 1986 vol 100 c496W
41. Mrs. Virginia Bottomley

asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what response he has received to the guidelines on the professional conduct of child abuse cases recently published by his Department.

Mr. Whitney

Consultation ends on 30 September and the Department is already receiving written comments. We hope as many organisations as possible will respond.
