§ Mr. R. DAVIES
asked the Home Secretary whether he will state when it is intended to issue the next report covering the work of the Children's Branch?
The staff of the Children's Branch has been so much occupied with the administration of the new Children and Young Persons Act and other matters that it has not been found possible to review its work in another report. My right hon. Friend recognises the usefulness of these reports, and hopes to have one issued as soon as circumstances permit.
