HC Deb 15 June 1998 vol 314 c63W
29. Mr. Coaker

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to pilot measures contained in the Crime and Disorder Bill[Lords]. [44272]

Mr. Michael

We plan to pilot a number of initiatives to tackle youth offending; measures to tackle delay in the youth justice system; the drug treatment and testing order; and use of live TV links between prison and court. Provided the Bill receives Royal Assent before the summer, we plan to commence these pilots in the autumn.
