§ Mr. Wheeler
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will carry out a review of the operation of the Children and Young Persons Act 1969.
§ Mr. Brittan
The Government plan to introduce legislation to amend the 123W Children and Young Persons Act 1969 to enable the courts to make a residential care order in respect of juvenile offenders. We are considering what form the order should take and whether other amendments to the law may be needed, but there are no plans to carry out a full review of the operation of the Act.
