HL Deb 20 April 1994 vol 554 c11WA
Lord Hylton

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What actions they are taking to prevent the abuse and killing of "street children" throughout the world.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

In those countries where street children are abused we raise the subject regularly. We also take a lead in the UN's efforts to increase international awareness of this subject. The European Union regularly introduces resolutions on street children at the UN. We and the EU give financial support to several groups and NGOs working with street children and helping to tackle the underlying causes of the phenomenon.
