§ Lord Dholakia
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will include ethnic monitoring of the new youth justice orders in their annual publication under Section 95 of the Criminal Justice Act 1991. [HL2389]
§ The Minister of State, Home Office (Lord Rooker)
Youth offending teams are required to collect individual data, including ethnicity on each young person they work with. This data identifies the type of order imposed.
The Youth Justice Board will be providing the Home Office with such information for inclusion in the publication under Section 95 of the Criminal Justice Act 1991 relating to the year 2002-03. The Home Office will be working with the Youth Justice Board to ensure the quality of this information.
