Short asked the Secretary of State for Social services what response he has sent to the St. Albans diocesan board for social responsibility about confirming the present funding of its link scheme for young offenders and if he will make a statement.

Representations from several sources in Hertfordshire including the diocesan board about an extension of funding are still being considered.
