Section 36: Power to revoke a referral order

302.Subsection (2) inserts a new section 27A into Part 3 of the 2000 Act (which deals with the mandatory and discretionary referral of young offenders). Under this new section a power is provided for a youth offender panel to refer the offender back to the appropriate court where they consider it is in the interests of justice for the referral order to be revoked. This will allow a young offender’s referral order to be revoked early where the offender makes good progress or where there are other good reasons to do so.
