HL Deb 13 July 1989 vol 510 cc511-2WA
The Lord Bishop of Ripon

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they will publish the research report on the experimental reparations scheme which was submitted to the Home Office in April 1988 and which, according to the Green Paper Punishment, Custody and the Community, was to be published by the end of 1988.

Earl Ferrers

Assessment of the four experimental reparation schemes is part of a wider study of reparation and mediation. Some results have been published but the main report has taken longer to prepare for publication than we expected. We hope to publish it in the next few months.
