The Government amendments in this group are minor, technical and consequential amendments that repeal legislative references that will be out of date due to the new youth rehabilitation orders. I hope that they will be acceptable to the Committee.

Government amendments Nos. 55, 56 and 73 concern the manner in which the Secretary of State makes arrangements for detention of young offenders sentenced under sections 90 or 91 of the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000. They are technical amendments relating to the youth rehabilitation orders and I commend them to the Committee. I will be happy to comment in due course on new clause 16 if it is spoken to by the hon. and learned Member for Harborough.
