§ Mr. Tipping
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many places at secure training centres will be provided to meet needs arising in Nottinghamshire; where these places will be available; when they will be provided; and how much they will cost in capital and revenue terms;
(2) what consultations he intends to hold, and with whom, about his plans to establish secure training centres;
(3) how many places at secure training centres will be necessary to meet needs in England and Wales; where these centres will be located; when they will be open; and how much they will cost in capital and revenue terms.
§ Mr. Jack
As my right hon. and learned Friend made clear in his statement to the House on 2 March, at columns 139–42, we are now preparing for the introduction of a new secure training order. In so doing, we are considering, inter alia, such matters as location, costs and numbers of places for the projected secure training centres. As part of this process, we will be seeking the views of representatives from a range of criminal justice agencies, voluntary agencies and interest groups.
