asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether, following the research conducted by Professor Karen Bryan on speech and language therapy for young people in prison under the auspices of the University of Surrey in collaboration with the Prison Service, they will screen young offenders for communication problems and provide therapy where appropriate.
