Young Offenders: Education

Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 6 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice what representations she has received on the level of education given to young female offenders; what response she has made to those representations; and if she will make a statement. (138087)

I have been asked to reply.

I understand that the Ministry of Justice has received no representations on the level of education given to young female offenders.

However, the Department for Education and Skills has launched a consultation on the issues affecting the education of all young people supervised by the youth justice system and is undertaking a series of consultation events and visits. The consultation closes on 4 July. The responses will inform proposals for reform, which will be published by the end of this year.
