...on the downside. I salute the 1 million men and women working in the private, public and voluntary sectors who devote their careers to the care of the most vulnerable children and adults—from child welfare, child protection and child custody, to the mentally ill and people with physical, sensory or learning disabilities, to people who are frail of body or of mind, to addicts who abuse...

Elfyn Llwyd: ...views. When a parent makes a statement of marital breakdown, courts can provide children with information appropriate to their age.

The Bill is a step in the right direction and its opponents are mistaken if...

Policing of London (5 Feb 1996)

David Maclean: ...think that the hon. Lady will regret her remarks. Her allegations have no credibility. Her remarks about policing in London were about as accurate as her assertion that there were no problems in the child welfare department in Islington. Let the House judge the hon. Lady's credibility. I do not say "honesty" or "integrity": I merely ask the House to judge her credibility. The hon. Lady...

Mr Anthony Coombs: ...huge area of work, some of it to do with the criminal justice system— liaison with the courts, prisoners and hostels and pre-sentence reports—and some outside the criminal justice system such as child welfare, family work and crime prevention in a more general context. That increase in work occurred despite the fact that it in the current year its total budget has fallen from £395...

Orders of the Day — Child Support Bill: CHILD MAINTENANCE DISREGARD (No. 2) (22 May 1995)

Mrs Mildred Gordon: ...huge crowds of angry people would not come to see us, write to us and attend meetings throughout the country because they feel that they are being conned and that the Government do not care about child welfare. Improving the legislation would have a positive effect on the non-resident fathers, who we want to provide support for their children. Although there may be a few rascals, most...

That was the system recommended in the Hunt report,...

New clause 1: Premises for the Provision of Child Care (19 Apr 1994)

Ms Jean Corston: ...highest child poverty rates among eight industrialised countries including Germany, France, Australia, Canada, the Netherlands and Sweden. There were such wide differences that a European model of child welfare was contrasted with what UNICEF described as a "neglect-filled" Anglo-American model. Thus France was quoted as having The most comprehensive child-care system in Western Europe...

Orders of the Day — Child Migrants (22 Nov 1993)

Mr John Bowis: ...that it was clearly insufficient to have good intentions, and we now have the stories of cruelty and abuse related by some of those migrants. We now have a more civilised and caring framework for child welfare. The Children Act 1989 makes the welfare of the child paramount. It reminds us that parents are the best people to bring up their children and requires local authorities to help...

Prayers: Children (25 Jun 1993)

Mr David Hinchliffe: ...made. One of the main points made by the hon. Member for Brecon and Radnor (Mr. Evans), with whom I entirely agree, was that we should not rely too heavily on statistics, especially in relation to child welfare. I think that the Minister will probably accept that. I speak with some concern because I was a social worker under the old law, prior to the Children Act 1989. I am absolutely...

Clause 3: Fingerprinting (11 Jan 1993)

Mr Mike Watson: ...more useful definition of the sort of person who should be permitted to accompany a child in these circumstances.

The remaining amendment simply corrects a minor drafting error.

Welfare of Children (6 Jun 1990)

Ian Taylor: ...believe that the Government are right to target income support rather than increase the more general provision of child benefit. The Government are beginning to do the right thing in other areas of child welfare and parental responsibility. Although at least one Opposition Member objected to the Government's efforts to make parents more responsible for the behaviour of juveniles, I...

Child Abuse (5 Apr 1990)

Mr Peter Hardy: ...the central executive committee of the society, I felt that I should seek an opportunity to pursue the matter.
