Traffic Management Act 2004

Lord Hanningfield asked Her Majesty's Government:

Lord Davies of Oldham: I can assure authorities that we shall be mindful of those sections of the Traffic Management Act that are not yet in force when considering how a local authority has performed its network management duties.

Young Offender Institutions: Stoke Heath

Baroness Stern asked Her Majesty's Government:

The Minister of State, Home Office (Baroness Scotland of Asthal): All of the offenders involved in the disturbance on A wing were juveniles, and all those transferred were under 18. During the early morning of 2 October, 12 juveniles were transferred out—six to Brinsford and six to Hindley. Later in the same day a further 53 trainees were transferred to Lancaster Farms (12), Werrington (12), Castington (11), Ashfield (6) Warren Hill (6), Parc (4) and Wetherby (2).

Baroness Stern asked Her Majesty's Government:

Baroness Scotland of Asthal: The estimated cost of the damage is £189,000.

Baroness Stern asked Her Majesty's Government:

Baroness Scotland of Asthal: Early indications from the investigation into the disturbance suggest that the increase in population has resulted in the wider dispersal of juveniles from their home area which may have contributed to an increased level of instability. The final report has now been received and will inform a wider review of factors impacting on stability in the juvenile population. Any measures which can be taken to improve stability will be closely examined.
