Memorandum by the Home
1999 (S.I. 1999/962)
1. The Committee have raised
the following question.
having regard to the fact that the 1988 Regulations amended by
this instrument have now been amended 14 times, whether a consolidation
is planned and if so on what timescale."
2. The Department accepts that,
in the light of the number of amendments that have been made to
the Young Offender Institution Rules 1988 (SI 1988/1422), a consolidation
at an early opportunity would be desirable. The timing will depend
upon that for making further substantive amendments to the rules.
In particular, amendments are likely to be required to take account
of the planned introduction of detention and training orders pursuant
to the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
