Select Committee on European Union Fortieth Report


Letter from Gerry Sutcliffe MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Home Office to the Chairman

  The clerk to the committee wrote on 10 July requesting progress on a Belgian proposal to establish a network of national contact points for restorative justice to develop, support and promote various aspects of restorative justice within Member States as well as at Union level.

  Since 4 March 2003,[168] when we last wrote to update you, the initiative was discussed, amended and approved during the April 2003 plenary session of the European Parliament (11621/2002-c5-0467/2002-2002/0821 (CNS)). The matter was then forwarded to the Council but there has been no further progress.

  We will, of course, keep you informed should there be any developments on this proposal.
