Offender Rehabilitation Bill — Money — 11 Nov 2013 at 21:50

The majority of MPs voted to approve spending in connection with the Offender Rehabilitation Bill.

The text of the approved motion was:

  • That, for the purposes of any Act resulting from the Offender Rehabilitation Bill [Lords], it is expedient to authorise the payment out of money provided by Parliament of any increase attributable to the Act in the sums payable under any other Act out of money so provided.

The Offender Rehabilitation Bill implements Government policies aimed at reducing re-offending. Many of the provisions are technical changes to probation arrangements. Notable provisions include[2]:

  • A new drug appointments condition for the licence or supervision period for offenders released from custody and an expansion of the existing drug testing requirement for licences to include Class B drugs.
  • New arrangements for the designation of “responsible officers” in relation to the supervision of offenders as well as making it clear that the responsibility for bringing breach action lies with the public sector.
  • New arrangements for offenders serving community orders or suspended sentence orders to obtain permission from the responsible officer or the court before changing their place of residence.
  • Greater periods of supervision by probation services after release from prison.
