<[i>Amendment No. 2 not moved.]

moved Amendment No. 3:

After Clause 1, insert the following new Clause-
"Custody of children: conditions to be met
(1) A court must not pass a custodial sentence unless-

(a) the offender has already been the subject of a youth rehabilitation order, or orders, which falls within section 1(3), or(b) the offence, or the combination of the offence and one or more offences associated with it, and the risks the offender poses to the public are so serious that, notwithstanding the age of the offender, a youth rehabilitation order which falls within section 1(3) cannot be justified for the offence.

(2) Where the court does pass a custodial sentence it shall set out in writing its reasons for doing so, both in general and with specific reference to the individual conditions set out in section 1."
