Mr Andy Slaughter

 

Negatived on division  36

 

Schedule  4,  page  75,  line  26,  leave out from ‘where’ to end of line 27 and insert ‘a

 

young person poses an imminent threat of injury to himself or others, and only when all

 

other means of control have been exhausted.’.

 

Mr Shailesh Vara

 

Agreed to  22

 

Schedule  4,  page  80,  line  15,  leave out ‘51 weeks’ and insert ‘12 months’.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

The offence of wrongful disclosure of information under paragraph 25 of Schedule 4 is triable ei­

 

ther on indictment or summarily. When section 154 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 comes into

 

force, the maximum term of imprisonment on summary conviction should change from 6 months to

 

12 months (not 51 weeks, which is appropriate for summary-only offences).

 

Mr Shailesh Vara

 

Agreed to  23

 

Schedule  4,  page  81,  line  29,   leave out ‘In section 15(3)(d) (funding of Local

 

Safeguarding Children Boards)’ and insert ‘In section 15(3) (funding of Local

 

Safeguarding Children Boards)—

 

(a)    

in paragraph (c), after “principal of a” insert “directly managed”, and

 

(b)    

in paragraph (d),’.

 

Member’s explanatory statement

 

This amendment provides that, where the principal of a secure college is a Board partner of the

 

authority that established a Local Safeguarding Children Board, the Secretary of State is only a

 

person who may make payments towards expenditure incurred by the Board if the college is direct­

 

ly managed, rather than contracted-out.

 

Mr Shailesh Vara

 

Agreed to  24

 

Schedule  4,  page  81,  line  30,  at end insert—

 

‘32A      

In section 33(3) (funding of Local Safeguarding Children Boards in Wales)—

 

(a)    

in paragraph (c), after “principal of a” insert “directly managed”, and

 

(b)    

in paragraph (d), after “or prison” insert “or the principal of a

 

contracted-out secure college”.’.

 

Mr Shailesh Vara

Schedule  4,  page  81,  line  33,  after ‘references’ insert ‘to a directly managed secure
