Silhouette for no photo

The Report of the Care of Children Committee (Myra Curtis) (England and Wales) published its findings, Parliamentary Papers X, Cmd 6922, September 1946. Around the same time, The Clyde Committee’s Report of the Committee on Homeless Children (Scottish Home Department, Cmnd 6911) was published in Scotland. Both paved the way for the Children Act 1948 (UK). Heywood (1959: 143) states that the recommendations made were ‘strikingly similar’.
