HC Deb 10 November 1992 vol 213 c766W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what steps he is taking to review the need for, and extend the provision of, local authority secure places.

Mr. Yeo

The need to provide additional local authority secure places to implement the new juvenile remand arrangements in the Criminal Justice Act 1991 has been considered by a multi-agency national steering group. We are discussing with local authorities how the additional secure places identified by the group might most effectively be provided.
