§ 17. Mr. Brazier
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what progress he has made in taking measures to deal with those who offend while on bail.
§ Mr. Maclean
We expect to bring into force within the next two months the provisions in the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act which are designed to tackle the problem of offending on bail. We have also made sure that the courts have the powers they need to deal more severely with those who offend on bail.
