HC Deb 25 February 1988 vol 128 c293W
Mr. Holt

To ask the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will make it his policy to carry out an investigation into the running of Cleveland county council's social services department, when the Butler Sloss tribunal reports; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Newton

I do not think it would be right for me to pre-empt the outcome and recommendations of Lord Justice Butler Sloss' inquiry report.
