Secure Training Centres: Physical Restraint

Volume 704: debated on Wednesday 29 October 2008

My right honourable friend the Minister of State (David Hanson) has made the following Written Ministerial Statement.

On 24 June, the Minister of State for Children, Young People and Families, my right honourable friend the Member for Stretford and Urmston (Beverley Hughes), and I announced our intention of  publishing the report prepared by Peter Smallridge and Andrew Williamson on the use of restraint in juvenile secure settings, together with the Government’s response, by the end of October.

The report covers a wide range of issues and consideration of them has necessitated detailed exploration which is still in progress. We will publish the report, and our response, by 15 December.
