14 Dec 1994 : Column WA128

Baroness Faithfull asked Her Majesty's Government:

    Why remanded juveniles from Yorkshire and Humberside are being held at Hull, Northallerton and Doncaster prisons rather than at Moorland young offender institution.

Baroness Blatch: Responsibility for this matter has been delegated to the Director General of the Prison Service, who has been asked to arrange for a reply to be given.

Letter to Baroness Faithfull from the Director General of the Prison Service, Mr. Derek Lewis, dated 14 December 1994:


    Lady Blatch has asked me to reply to your recent Question about remanded juveniles from Yorkshire and Humberside being held at Hull, Northallerton and Doncaster prisons rather than at Moorland young offender institution.


    The catchment areas and functions of the establishments in question were reviewed prior to the opening of Doncaster prison in June. Following this review, it was decided that Moorland should no longer take juveniles or young prisoners on remand. The Yorkshire and Humberside courts are now served by Doncaster, Northallerton, Hull and The Wolds prisons.

COMBINED HEAT AND POWER

Viscount Hanworth asked Her Majesty's Government:

    What steps they are taking to promote combined heat and power schemes in the United Kingdom; and whether they accept that such schemes can contribute to energy efficiency.

The Minister of State, Department of the Environment (Viscount Ullswater): The Government have long recognised the important role combined heat and power (CHP) can play in improving energy efficiency in the United Kingdom. These work closely with industry to promote the wider use of CHP in all sectors of the United Kingdom economy and to identify and endeavour to resolve any unnecessary barriers to its wider uptake. As part of the United Kingdom Climate Change Programme, the Government set a challenging target of 5000 MW installed capacity by the year 2000.
