I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time.

Madam Deputy Speaker:

With this it will be convenient to consider the following: New clause 2-- Exclusion of prisoners convicted of offences against children from power to release short-term prisoners on licence --

Chief Justice. The then Lord Chief Justice issued a practice direction in January 1998 requiring a court imposing a custodial sentence to explain the practical effect of that sentence for the benefit of the defendant, any victim and members of the public. Although the practice direction was issued before home detention curfew became available, it specifically states that if the statutory provisions governing early release are materially amended, then the model statements annexed to the direction will require modification. Courts are therefore already expected to explain the possible effect of home detention curfew on the offender."--[ Official Report , 22 January 2001; Vol. 361, c. 485W.]

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time:--

The House proceeded to a Division.

The House having divided: Ayes 183, Noes 286.
