Baroness Cumberlege: This title referred to is from a project paper recently presented in Oslo, Norway by Dr. Marjorie Smith of the Thomas Coram Research Unit. The material was drawn from the main study Parental Control within the Family: The Nature and Extent of Parental Violence to Children, which was funded from the Department of Health's policy research programme and completed in December 1994.
The results of the study published so far are those covered in Child Protection: Messages from Research. Copies of this publication are available in the Library. A series of papers detailing the full results are being prepared for publication.
The Lord Privy Seal (Viscount Cranborne): There is already effective co-operation between my right honourable friends the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Foreign and Commonwealth Secretary on European issues. This will be assisted in the future, as in the past, by the arrangements for collective Cabinet responsibility, in which the First Secretary of State will play an important role, not least as chairman of several Cabinet Committees and an ex-officio member of others.
Viscount Cranborne: The First Secretary of State has responsibility for the Cabinet Office/Office of Public Service. Ministers answer for these areas in accordance with the most recent list of ministerial spokesmanships. All Ministers in the House of Lords answer for Her Majesty's Government on any matters of Government responsibility.
