Community Orders: Young Offenders

Volume 501: debated on Thursday 26 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the cost to his Department was of community sentences for those aged (a) under 18 years old and (b) 18 to 21 years old; and if he will make a statement. (301319)

We do not hold this information centrally. Community sentences for those aged under 18 are provided by youth offending teams (YOTs). YOTs are funded from a range of central and local sources and data are not collected centrally on what proportion of this funding is spent on community sentences. Community sentences for those aged 18 to 21 are provided by the Probation Service. Data are not collected centrally on what proportion of their funding is spent on community sentences.
