asked the Minister of Labour, (1) in which areas she proposes to set up the new juvenile advisory committees recently announced; and in which of these areas it is proposed to set up district sub-committees of these juvenile advisory committees;

(2) what has hitherto been the composition of juvenile advisory committees in Scotland; and what powers and duties have been assigned to them by the Ministry?

Before reconstitution, the composition of juvenile advisory committees in Scotland was determined in accordance with a Memorandum of Agreement between the Scottish Education Department and the Ministry of Labour, a copy of which I am sending to the Noble Lady. No change in the committees' duties and powers is contemplated on reorganisation. I am unable to state the areas in which the new committees and district committees will operate, as these are still under consideration.
