Mr. Younger

The committee's second report, "Keeping Offenders Out of Court: Further Alternatives to Prosecution" was laid before the House yesterday and is published today. Copies are available in the Vote Office. My noble and learned Friend the Lord Advocate and I are grateful to Lord Stewart and the other members of the committee for their thorough report. We shall be consulting interested bodies and will consider the recommendations in the light of the comments we receive.
