asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish the Home Office circular recommending the use of detention centres for first offenders; and if he will make a statement on the considerations which he took into account in deciding to issue the circular.

I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the current Home Office circular on detention centres. There is also a copy in the Library. It does not contain such a recommendation.
