Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Family Allowances (27 Jun 1966)

Mr Willie Hamilton: Could my right hon. Friend say, perhaps in the OFFICIAL REPORT, what bodies she is consulting in this matter? Is she consulting, for instance, the Child Poverty Action Group and representatives from child welfare committees, as the social workers engaged by these committees are doing very useful work in meeting the large families which are suffering great hardship and poverty at this time?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Children In Care (23 Jun 1966)

Ministry of Social Security Bill: Clause 3. — (the Supplementary Benefits Commission.) (13 Jun 1966)

Mr John Pardoe: ...coordinating all the various functions, even those of the Ministry of Health, in one Department. There is a case for far greater co-ordination of house-to-house visiting, local welfare services, child welfare services, the medical services and many of the voluntary organisations which have been mentioned already. As the Minister has said, this would produce a vast and unwieldy Ministry....

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Adoption Orders (2 Mar 1966)

Mr Leo Abse: Is my hon. Friend aware that the application of this blood-tie doctrine is in breach of every canon of child welfare, that it has caused grave anxiety to many adopters and would-be adopters and that its application can lead to serious and dramatic effects upon little ones which could have lasting and maiming emotional consequences?

Mr Michael McGuire: ...Bury St. Edmunds (Mr. Eldon Griffiths) on the first part of his speech, when he congratulated my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry, South (Mr. William Wilson) on the reforms suggested in regard to child welfare and juvenile courts. The hon. Gentleman seemed to imply that there was some danger in the reforms suggested by the Government. I am sorry that my hon. Friend is not in the Chamber...

Public Health (Notification of Births) Bill (18 Jun 1965)

Mr Charles Loughlin: ...the observations of the hon Member for Tiverton because from the beginning this was a joint venture and there has been no controversy of any kind among hon. Members. Local authority maternity and child welfare services have been severely strained by the increase in the birth rate in recent years, but all statistics of maternity and infant mortality rates show that while there has been...

Orders of the Day — Rates (5 May 1965)

Mr Julius Silverman: ..., for the construction and maintenance of roads and public lighting, the collection of refuse and disposal of sewage, the public health functions performed by the local authority such as midwifery, child welfare, domestic helps and ambulances, all of which are paid for by the local authority, parks, art galleries, museums and libraries and a large number of other sundry services. All...

Orders of the Day — Clause 20. — (Control by Court, in Certain Cases, of Money Recovered Under Fatal Accidents Acts.) (25 Feb 1965)

Mr Charles Mapp: ...apply. But there it is—and I must tell the Minister and the House that some of our social service workers, not least the Citizens Advice Bureaux, family service units all over the country and child welfare officers all feel that this is a new instrument available to them. At an early stage they will be able to take advantage of this simplified machinery and start constructively on the...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address [Sixth Day] (10 Nov 1964)

Mr David Ensor: ...trying to do is to prevent crime among young people, to see that young people do not get into trouble at a very early age. I think that is something which we should study very closely. There are child welfare boards—the name varies in different countries but the effect is the same. The board knows when little Tommy is getting into mischief and may well get into further trouble if...

Oral Answers to Questions — Technical Co-Operation: Hong Kong (Assistant Director of Social Welfare) (25 Jun 1964)

Mrs Barbara Castle: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this advertisement specifies that the applicant must be a male? Is he further aware that the qualifications required for the post are experience in family and child welfare, youth work, care of old people and social welfare generally? Is it not clear that women are exceptionally well qualified for this kind of post? Is it not outrageous that sex...

Crimes of Violence (Compensation for Victims) (5 May 1964)

Mr Alan Brown: ...contribution to the debate, the more so because it happens to be just 18 years ago this week that I began as a voluntary worker in this form of social service, covering delinquency and juvenile and child welfare. There is no substitute for practical experience of dealing with delinquency, with meeting delinquents young and old, delinquency in the raw. With the greatest respect to the...

The Gambia (17 Apr 1964)

Mr John Cordle: ...-educated people who will look for the sort of jobs that the country cannot provide. They need to be educated for better agriculture. They need training in better hygiene and sanitation as well as child welfare. All this must be done by expatriate workers, who are leaving Africa at this time, and if we take no step now to help the Gambia its lot will be poor indeed. We shall perhaps have...

Local Government Expendi Ture (Rating System) (20 Mar 1964)

Dr Horace King: ...old folk especially, the Christian work of children's committees, the colossal work of housing committees, the work of planning committees and public lands and transport committees, maternity and child welfare committees—all these provide real wealth for the citizens, and they provide for the ratepayer by co-operative effort things which he could not buy with the money that he spends...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (19 Dec 1963)

Mr Maurice Edelman: The hon. Gentleman has just said that it is intended to make beds available for every maternity case for which they are suitable. But did not the Minister say to a maternal and child welfare conference this year that it was the Government's intention to provide beds for 70 per cent. of the potential mothers by 1972? Does that not contradict what the hon. Gentleman has just said?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Scotland (General Grant) (16 Dec 1963)

Lady Grant of Monymusk: ...authorities in respect of boarded-out children, higher telephone and postal charges. The main item which, although relatively small, perhaps merits special mention, is the increase in the cost of child welfare services, which are likely to arise under the Children and Young Persons Act, 1963. The best estimate that can be made at the present time is that in the year 1964–65 the extra...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimates, 1963–64: Local Government (General Grant) (4 Dec 1963)

Mr John Temple: ...under the specific grants was getting 58 per cent., and all other services 50 per cent, or less. I understand that the Treasury indicated originally that it was anticipated that the health and child welfare services would grow at a faster rate than the rest of the growth rates within the services which are dealt with in this Order. As a matter of fact, that did not turn out to be the...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill: Clause 47. — (Children Authorities.) (25 Jul 1963)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: ...the hon. Lady's speech when she moved the Amendment. I think she referred to Clause 50. My hon. Friends were speaking—and admirably, too— about voluntary contributions to bodies concerned with child welfare, but I think the hon. Lady was talking about petroleum, a fact which escaped my hon. Friend's notice because they are further away from the hon. Lady than I am. She made a rather...

Clause 2. — (Children and Young Persons in Need of Care, Protec- Tion or Control.) (15 Jul 1963)

Mr Charles Mapp: ...not repeat some of the unhappy phrases which I have read and some of which I think on reflection should not have been made. That covers the society and perhaps one or two other bodies interested in child welfare. The House is solely concerned with what should be its attitude. There is another alternative on the Order Paper which it will consider later. My suggestion would write into the...

Orders of the Day — CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS BILL [Lords]: New clause. — (Establishment of Case Committees.) (5 Jul 1963)

...authority refuses to take the child into care. It may happen that a parent is desperate and is faced with the problem of what to do with the child. On the advice perhaps of some comparatively junior child welfare officer the parent may go to the police, or to the Family Welfare Association or the Citizens' Advice Bureau, and be told that the only thing to do is to take the child to court...
