HC Deb 03 July 1961 vol 643 c83W
Mr. Buck

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when it is proposed to make available places at new or existing detention centres to enable courts in the Colchester area to sentence offenders between the ages of 17 and 21 years to detention in a detention centre when such a sentence is, in accordance with the law, deemed to be appropriate by the court.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I hope that in about two months' time the whole of Essex will be included in the committal area of a senior detention centre.
