HC Deb 04 July 1985 vol 82 c232W
37. Mr. Boyes

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will set up an inquiry into sentencing policy for young people.

Mr. Mellor

No. The Criminal Justice Act 1982 introduced a new sentencing structure for young offenders, whose effects we are monitoring closely; but my right hon. and learned Friend has no further plans for major change in this area.
