This Order amends the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 (Transitional Modifications of Part I) Order 1970 by raising from 12 to 13 years the age above which the restrictions contained in section 13(2) of the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 on placing a child under the supervision of a probation officer shall not apply and the specified age for the purposes of section 34(2) and (3) of the Act.
As modified, section 34(2) and (3) provides that where care or criminal proceedings are brought in the case of a child over 13 years or a young person, prior notice must be given to a probation officer and that, where arrangements have been made for a probation officer to make enquiries into the child's or young person's home surroundings, the local authority shall be relieved of their duty under section 9(1) to make those enquiries.
