Offender Management Bill — New Clause 11 — Restriction on certain arrangements under section 3(2) — 28 Feb 2007 at 16:00

John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare did not vote.

A new Clause 11 had just been inserted into the Offender Management Bill, which said:

(1) Arrangements under section 3(2) relating to restricted probation provision may only be made with a probation trust or other public body.

(2) In this section "restricted probation provision" means probation provision which—

(a) is made for a purpose mentioned in section 2(1)(a) or (b); and

(b) relates to the giving of assistance to any court in determining the appropriate sentence to pass, or making any other decision, in respect of a person charged with or convicted of an offence.'

The majority Noes defeated an attempted amendment to this clause:

(a), in line 2, leave out from 'trust' to end of line 8 and insert—

'(2) In this section "restricted probation provision" means probation provision which—

(a) is made for one of the probation purposes set out in section 1(1)(a), (c) and (f);

(b) is for the provision of assistance to the Parole Board;

(c) is for the management of approved premises within the meaning of section 9.

The effect of the defeated amendment would have been to restrict the making of arrangements for restricted probation provision to probation trusts and not "other public bodies" or the private sector.
