asked the Attorney General if his right hon. Friend the Lord Chancellor has received a request for funds for the children's legal centre from the United Kingdom Association for the International Year of the Child; if a sum has been granted; and, if so, how much.
My noble Friend, the Lord Chancellor, along with other Ministers, has received a request for funds from the International Year of the Child for a children's legal centre project. He has made no grant for this purpose. I understand, however, that my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services is considering the application.
