Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Clause 19 — Detention of Young Offenders in Young Offender Institutions, Secure Training Centres and Secure Colleges — 12 May 2014 at 21:45

The majority of MPs voted to replace remand centres, detention centres and youth custody centres for those aged between 14 and 21 with young offender institutions, secure training centres and secure colleges.

MPs were considering the Criminal Justice and Courts Bill[1]. The proposed amendment rejected in this vote was:

  • I beg to move amendment 18, page 19, line 4, leave out clause 19.

Clause 19[2] sought to replace section 43 of the Prison Act 1952 which, in relation for those aged between 14 and 21 provided for remand centres, detention centres and youth custody centres with a new clause on "Places for the detention of young offenders etc", with those places being (a) young offender institutions, (b) secure training centres, and (c) secure colleges.
