Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State
23rd November 2003
(This note is not part of the Rules)
These Rules amend the Secure Training Centre Rules 1998 (S.I. 1998/472). The majority of the changes are so that certain provisions apply differently to persons detained in secure training centres who have not been convicted of an offence. Previously, it was not possible for a person who had not been convicted of an offence to be detained in a secure training centre. However, section 133 of the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001 (c. 16) amended section 23 of the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 (c. 24) so that a person who had been remanded to local authority secure accommodation could be detained in a secure training centre, with the consent of the Secretary of State.
In addition, rule 2(2) and (5) of these Rules makes some changes to rules 2, 10 and 42 of the Secure Training Centre Rules 1998 in order to improve the drafting.
1952 c. 52 (15 & 16 Geo 6 and 1 Eliz 2 c. 52); section 47 was amended by section 6 of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 (c. 33). There are other amendments which are not relevant to these Rules.
1989 c. 41; section 22(1) was amended by paragraph 19 of Schedule 5 to the Local Government Act 2000 (c. 22), section 2 of the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 (c. 35) and section 116(2) of the Adoption and Children Act 2002 (c. 38).
Rule 45A has effect as a modification in the application of the Secure Training Centre Rules 1998 to a contracted-out secure training centre, by virtue of rule 46(1) and (14).
