To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what response he has received to his proposals to tackle youth crime. [15814]

The Government's formal proposals for tackling youth crime were set out in the three consultation documents and the consultation periods for these documents closed recently. Several hundred responses were received, and these are currently being assessed. The intention is to provide Parliament with a report on these consultation exercises as soon as practicable. More generally we have received an enthusiastic response from the police, the public and most other organisations in the field.
