HC Deb 15 June 1995 vol 261 c626W
Mr. Hinchliffe

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will list for each year since the implementation of the Children Act 1989 the number of child abuse investigations undertaken in total and the outcomes broken down into(a) court action under provisions of the Act, (b) entries on an at risk register, (c) informal supervision and (d) no further action. [28894]

Mr. Bowis

Information collected centrally relates only to those child abuse investigations that result in an initial stage child protection conference. Figures on children placed on registers—and associated legal status including court orders for those on registers at 31 March—and on those subject to initial stage conferences which did not lead to registration are published annually in "Children and young people on child protection registers, year ending 31 March 19XX, England", copies of which are available in the Library.
