§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether schedule 13 of the Criminal Justice Bill is intended to have the effect of reversing the decision of the Divisional court in Rogers v. Cullen.
§ Mr. Mayhew
No. The repeals in schedule 13, which I think the hon. Member has in mind, are consequential on paragraph 1(a) of schedule 9 to the Bill, which repeals section 4 of the Powers of Criminal Courts Act 1973 under which day training centres are provided. I understand that an appeal against the Divisional Court's decision in Rogers v. Cullen is now pending before the House of Lords. In the light of the outcome of that appeal, my right hon. Friend will consider whether any change in the law relating to clay centres is required.
