asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what proposals he has concerning amendments to the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 to ensure that juvenile courts have adequate powers to deal with boys of 11 years or less who have committed numerous offences and caused substantial damage to property while in the care of a local authority.52W
making his statement on payments in respects of vaccine damage, he did not seek advice on the tax position in relation to any income produced by the investment of the payments to be made.

As soon as I am in a position to give further details on this and other aspects of the payments scheme, I will of course do so.
