asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has yet considered the recommendations of the Wolverhampton Juvenile Delinquency Committee which has, at his request, been studying child crime for the last 12 months, and which include the establishment of junk playgrounds on waste grounds and more protection by firms of their goods when displayed on open counters; and how far he is proposing to introduce legislation to cover these recommendations.
