§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what grants his Department makes to voluntary organisations concerned to establish new programmes for juvenile offenders as an alternative to custody; if he will list the organisations and the amounts involved; and what are the comparable figures for each of the last five years at constant prices.
§ Mr. Mayhew
The making of grants to voluntary organisations for work with juvenile offenders is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Social Services. Grants given by the Home Office to voluntary organisations concerned primarily with adults may on occasion be used for juveniles; but no separate figures ire available to indicate the extent of such expenditure.
