Mr David Hinchliffe: ...individuals goes ahead, 36 more pits will close and 51,000 jobs will go. Those jobs directly affect the lives of children for whom we are legislating in the Children Bill.

It is about marital stress, marital problems, isolation, deprivation, poverty and, above all,...

New Clause 13: Child Assessment Orders (23 Oct 1989)

Keith Vaz: ...the law and said: Of course, of itself, legislation cannot stop such tragedies, but we hope that a clear legal framework will help to make more likely clear-eyed judgments by key people involved in child welfare, whether they are in social services departments, health authorities, the police, education or the courts."—[Official Report, 27 April 1989; Vol. 151 c. 1108.] There was a direct...

Schedule 11: Consequential Amendments (23 Oct 1989)

Mr Peter Hardy: ...raise an area of anxiety at this point in our debate. Although the amendments are consequential, consequences flow from them, one of which is causing real concern to the professionals involved in child welfare. It is almost inevitable that the consequence of the amendments and of the Bill will be greatly to increase the need for guardians ad litem. There will have to be significant...

Orders of the Day — Children Bill [Lords] (27 Apr 1989)

Mrs Mildred Gordon: ...on the statute book to replace the existing mystifying patchwork of regulations that are honoured in the breach, and money must be made available to local authorities so that they can employ more child welfare officers to monitor and enforce the law.

Child Protection (19 Dec 1988)

Mr Geoffrey Dickens: ...is at the moment. I have the Bill here, but I do not want to be accused of introducing it in the House. However, hon. Members may be interested to know that part I deals with general principles on child welfare, part II with orders in respect of children in family and other proceedings, part III with local authority support for children and families. part IV with care and supervision,...

Parental Leave (9 Nov 1988)

Harry Cohen: ...between the parents, recognising it as a joint responsibility, not the woman's alone. Parental leave actively promotes that important change in attitude. Parental leave also improves family and child welfare. It allows and encourages mother and father to work together as a team, sharing the burdens and the pleasures of caring for their baby. It recognises the importance of bonding,...

Prayers: Maternity Services (Bexley) (15 Jul 1988)

David Evennett: ...ensure a balanced community in the north of the borough of Bexley. A consequence of that is a high demand for the services that young families require, such as nursery and infant school places, child welfare services, playschools, recreation facilities and, of course, maternity care. In Crayford alone, the birth rate is on average 350 to 400 births a year. Women who live in Erith and...

The Army (26 Jan 1988)

Mr Bob Cryer: ...expenditure amounts to £19 billion. UNICEF has used its money for 373,000 health centres, 1 million schools and teacher training institutes, 770,000 child nutrition centres and 387,000 family and child welfare clinics. We have been talking about incredibly sophisticated defence equipment to guard against our mythical enemy. However, the enemy which the Government have postulated was met...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Day Nurseries (12 Jan 1988)

Tom Clarke: ...000, only 500 extra places were made available? In view of the genuine concern about family poverty, which the hon. Lady should not dismiss, and the national debate reflecting people's concern about child welfare, is it not a matter of great urgency that local authorities—not just Nottinghamshire—are forced into making a choice between, for example, providing library facilities or...

Licensing (Amendment) Bill: Effects of Variation Orders (1 May 1987)

Bernard Braine: ...habits, some say beneficially and many say adversely. But we can all agree on one matter. Licensing is no longer solely a matter of law and order for the Home Office. It has implications for health, child welfare and road safety. The new clause would ensure that not only the Home Office but the Department of Health and Social Security and the Department of Transport will monitor the...

Family Law Reform Bill [Lords] (7 Apr 1987)

Nick Brown: ...vehicle for such an amendment because it would be outside the scope of the Bill. While it affects children who are born out of wedlock, it has wider-ranging implications and consultation with child welfare authorities is necessary. I can see that there is some force in this, and I am certainly not pre-judging the issue. Unlike the issue of nationality, I still have an open mind on this...

Orders of the Day — Parental Leave Bill (27 Mar 1987)

Harry Cohen: .... Our rate is much lower than the rates comparable countries. Parental leave also helps the fairer distribution of responsibilities for child care between the parents and improves family and child welfare. That is vital. We are approaching a general election in which, I am sure, the family will be on the agenda. Parental leave helps the family. We all know of the increasing problems of...

Parental Leave (11 Feb 1987)

Harry Cohen: ...challenges the view that child care is purely a woman's role. Instead, looking after children becomes recognised as the parents' joint responsibility. Fourthly, parental leave improves family and child welfare. It helps in a small but important way to enable a mother and a father to work together as a team with their young baby. They are both more available to share the responsibilities,...

New Clause 5: Regulations as to Accommodation at Home of Children in Care (2 May 1986)

Mr Dennis Walters: ...support and valuable assistance of the Family Law Bar Association, and, in private, the support of a number of senior judges, the Law Society and several other organisations concerned with child welfare did not accept the strength and validity of our argument about magistrates courts. Perhaps I may say how much the Bill owes to the enormous work and help given by the Family Law Bar...

Prayers: Child Abuse (29 Nov 1985)

Dr Norman Godman: ...bring about a significant reduction in the incidence of this social evil; recognises that social workers, doctors, health visitors, school-teachers, police officers and all the others concerned with child welfare must be given the means by which they can become more highly skilled in the prevention, detection and treatment of child abuse and neglect; and calls upon the Government to...

Blackmill Hospital, Ogmore (26 Jul 1985)

Mr Raymond Powell: ...and funded by the DHSS. I am sure that my proposals would mean that the costings of Blackmill hospital for the year ended 13 March 1984 could be substantially reduced. Last, but not least, the child welfare clinic, the chiropody clinic and other community-based functions are sited at the hospital. They were sited at the hospital because alternative accommodation was not available in the...

Local Government (10 Dec 1984)

Mr Tony Benn: ..., the city took over the supply of gas; 1875, the fire brigade; 1876, the water supply; 1890, the first municipal houses; 1898, the supply of electricity; 1904, its own tramways; 1908, maternity and child welfare; 1916, municipal savings; 1919, the orchestra; and 1939, the municipal airport.
