" If lee can get family life restored the chances are that delinquency will .disappear."

So said Mr. John Wolfenden, principal Probation Officer in Liverpool, speaking on " Crime," last week. He added that behind nearly all habitual criminals stood the ghost of a juvenile delinquent who was standing in the shadow of a home where something had been wrong.
