Children: Human Rights

Volume 498: debated on Wednesday 28 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will commission research to establish the lawfulness of practices used by institutions to restrict the freedom of movement of children. (289214)

All institutions are inspected by the relevant inspectorate. Where the inspectorate has reason to believe that the institution is using unlawful practices to restrict the movement of young people they will take appropriate enforcement action. We do not currently plan to commission research into the practices used by institutions to restrict the freedom of movement of children.
