§ Mr. John Evans
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what further representations have been made to him on the workings of the Children and Young Persons Act; and if he is satisfied with the working of the Act, in the light of such representations.
§ Mr. Alexander W. Lyon
My right hon. Friend continues to receive representations about the working of certain aspects of the 1969 Act from juvenile court panels and others. The criticisms and suggestions made, together with the representations previously received, are receiving consideration as part of the current review of the operation of the legislation.
