§ Mr. Grylls
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to introduce legislation to repeal the Children and Young Persons Act; and how many approved school places it is his intention to pro vide by the legislation replacing it.
§ Mr. Mayhew
My right hon. Friend hopes to introduce legislation soon to give effect to the Government's proposals for strengthening the powers of the courts which were set out in the White Paper on young offenders.
