New Member: Direct Labour Organisations (30 Mar 1982)

Mr Allen McKay: ...a little further, because all the Sheffield trams were built by direct labour and were acknowledged to be the finest in the country.

The build-up of the direct works department continued as it moved into those fields. It now has a work force of 3,000 people and it...

Social Security Benefits (Payments) (12 May 1981)

Mr Norman Buchan: This has been an extraordinary exchange. The right hon. Gentleman has succeeded in one short statement in endangering rural post offices, enraging all the groups concerned with child welfare, and causing hardship to millions of mothers. Are we right in thinking that this process of enraging some and causing hardship to others has been designed to save £7 million less £2 million to support...

Adjournment (Spring) (14 May 1980)

Mr Kenneth Marks: ...of the Secretary of State for the Environment will have a great impact on young families. Such families use the social services more than others. Conditions in schools will worsen. Facilities for child welfare, nursery education, libraries and recreation will become worse. All those facilities affect families. Some Ministers may say that local councils must decide how to spend their...

Orders of the Day — Licensing etc. (Amendment) Bill (30 Nov 1979)

Mr Ronald Lewis: ...any boy or girl under the age of 16 for on-consumption. It was not until 1872 that that prohibition was extended to the whole country. The present century has witnessed remarkable developments in child welfare. It is significant that coincidentally with the provision of better conditions for children, better education, free meals, medical treatment, school clinics and special care for...

Orders of the Day — International Year of the Child (4 Jul 1979)

Orders of the Day — Protection of Children Bill (10 Feb 1978)

Mr Cyril Townsend: ...the deviance of those whose own sexual drive is dangerous to them. In recent months I have carried out a nationwide investigation into child porn in Britain.

I have been greatly assisted by the National Abuse...

Orders of the Day — METHODIST CHURCH BILL [Lords] (15 Jun 1976)

Dr Edmund Marshall: considered appropriate for the purposes of the Church.

The provisions will enable the Methodist Church to act...

Orders of the Day — Race Relations Bill (4 Mar 1976)

Mr Alex Lyon: ...white or black, he has to take his turn on the housing list. In problems of housing, all are dealt with in the same way.

The black community are at a disadvantage because they arrived here only in the last 20 years and...

Orders of the Day — CHILDREN BILL [Lords] (20 Jun 1975)

Mrs Helene Hayman: ...the faults of the system in returning children to their natural parents. I do not share the view of organisations which say that this measure should not be enacted unless all the other measures on child welfare are enacted at the same time. We want the right sort of financial day care social support to be provided for one-parent families and poor families. However, it is no good shutting...

Juvenile Crime (9 Dec 1974)

Mr John Watkinson: ...hon. Friends mentioned that the Seebohm Report, which coincided with the implementtion of the Children and Young Persons Act, and the reorganisation of the social services acted to the detriment of child welfare, because we now had the principle of the team worker as opposed to the specialised worker. The implementation of regional planning boards has also provided a source of...

Max Piazzani (22 Nov 1974)

Mr Eric Moonman: ...for children is to be reduced to a lower level? Another question that is worrying many people is whether the personal qualifications of the Assistant Director with nominal responsibility for child welfare will figure in this structure, and whether the inspectorial powers and teeth of the social work service will be of any value. I appreciate the Minister's concern and determination to...

Mr Donald Coleman: ...crossing? Is he aware that the same conditions will obtain with the new road and that the conditions will be intensified?

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (23 Oct 1972)

Mr Albert Roberts: ...schools, which are second to none in the country. The Rothwell people are very proud of their services. I was a member of the Rothwell Council for 15 years. We had one of the best maternity and child welfare services in the country. Our housing problem is not great. We dealt with immunisation long before some of the county boroughs did. What is local government all about? Are we to be...

Mr Hector Monro: ...and the programme to which the hon. Gentleman referred was specifically for England and Wales.

I believe that a good job is being done.

Schools (Truancy) (23 Jun 1971)

Mr Merlyn Rees: ...are bound to be reflected in the attitudes of children. The Leeds Evening Post made its own inquiry and said that there was an increase in parental apathy and in the number of working mothers, the child welfare departments were undermanned and there was inadequate punishment by magistrates. In Bradford, where 4,000 out of 56,000 children are absent from school each day, the article went on...

Clause 2: Statement of Right of Abode, and Related Amendments as to Citizenship by Registration (16 Jun 1971)

Mrs Doris Fisher: of the local authority for a variety of reasons. One reason is that the parent is not a fit person to care for the child. The law provides that these children should be taken care of through child welfare associations and other organisations. Similarly, there are immigrants who are not good parents and whose children are taken from them and put into the care of the local authority....

Welfare Foods (14 Jun 1971)

Miss Irene Ward: ...of my party, that a great deal of the improvement in children's health and appearance was due to the Act, introduced in the late thirties by Mr. Neville Chamberlain, which established maternity and child welfare centres.
