Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill — Clause 139 — Secure 16 to 19 Academies — 28 Feb 2022 at 21:30
The majority of MPs voted not to allow local councils to run secure schools, youth custody establishments, for 16 to 19 year olds.
The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 107.
Amendment 107 stated:
- Page 128, line 22, at end insert—
- “(8) A local authority may establish and maintain a secure 16 to 19 Academy.”
Had it not been rejected the amendment would have impacted Clause 139 of the Bill which permitted an academy school to provide secure accommodation for its pupils, but only if it is approved to do so by the Secretary of State.
Clause 139 includes a definition of “Secure accommodation” as accommodation that is provided for the purpose of restricting liberty.
