Secure Unit For Young Offenders In Wales (No.2)

EDM number 1339 in 1989-90, proposed by Alun Michael on 24/07/1990.

That this House is appalled at the reply given by the honourable Member for Cardiff Central which shows he is ignorant both of the grave concern that has been expressed over many years about the lack of a secure unit in Wales, leading to inappropriate remands in prison of young people and the repeated assurances by the Welsh Office that a secure unit is to be achieved shortly; and calls on the Government to recognise that the provision of such a unit would ensure the remand of young people in suitable accommodation, take pressure off the Prison Service, protect the public and enable non-secure units operated by local authorities and community-based work with young people to concentrate on the essential job of diverting young people from criminal activity.

This motion has been ammended, see 419A1.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
