Youth Justice System

Volume 455: debated on Wednesday 10 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many first time entrants there were into the youth justice system in the year ending 31 March (a) 2004, (b) 2005 and (c) 2006. (108112)

[holding answer 18 December 2006]: The Home Office does not hold the requested data. Since 31 March 2005 the Youth Justice Board has had a target on reducing the number of first-time entrants into the youth justice system. Data from 2005-06 will form the baseline for this target which will be reported on in future years.
