Section 44 - Certain provisions of Part 2 not to apply to children and young persons in detention

114.Section 44 deals with the application of duties in the Act in relation to children and young people who are detained. Subsection (1) provides for the duties on governing bodies and local authorities listed in subsection (2) to cease to apply in relation to a detained person (defined in section 39(1)) from the start of the detention.

115.Subsection (3) provides for the duties on governing bodies listed in subsection (4) not to apply in relation to a child or young person who is detained in accommodation other than relevant youth accommodation in Wales or England.

116.Subsections (5) to (7) deal with the interaction between Part 2 and section 562 of the 1996 Act. Section 562 disapplies a local authority’s functions under the 1996 Act in relation to certain persons who are detained. The Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 amends section 562 so that the disapplication no longer applies to those who are detained in relevant youth accommodation. Section 562 applies to the Act (see section 99(6)). Subsections (5) to (7) apply section 562 for the purposes of the Act as if the amendments to it made by the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 were already fully in force in relation to Wales, and its reference to relevant youth accommodation were to relevant youth accommodation in Wales or England. The result is that the duties in Part 2 of the Act on home authorities are not disapplied in relation to those detained in relevant youth accommodation in Wales or England, but duties on local authorities in Part 2 do not apply in relation to a child or young person who is detained in accommodation other than relevant youth accommodation in Wales or England.
