Non-custodial Sentences

Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 3 July 2006, Official Report, columns 880-82W, on non-custodial sentences, for what reasons reparation is not included in orders other than the action plan order and the reparation order. (86415)

The table referred to in my answer of 3 July 2006, Official Report, columns 880-82W, gave general descriptions of the community sentences available for dealing with young offenders. Reparation, victim awareness and repairing the harm caused by offending are common threads running throughout the community sentencing framework. In practice all community orders offer the sentencer the flexibility to attach elements of reparation either within the order itself or in combination with another order.
