Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: Sexual Health Education (24 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I thank my right hon. Friend for her reply and ask her to note that the question comes not from some out-of-touch old bloke on the Back Benches, but from an extremely bright young woman currently working in my office—Ms Tiana Golden. She identified this as the priority issue out of the whole range of Department for Education and Skills questions that could be asked. Will my right hon....

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: There is a serious, new but growing problem of young people being sentenced to custody because they are in breach of antisocial behaviour orders. They are often young people without substantial criminal records, but we have opened up a new avenue for custody.

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I did not say much about secure training centres. However, would the Minister confirm that in their staffing ratios, the quality of life that they offer and the training of the staff whom they employ, they do not meet the standards and principles of residential care for children?

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I accept that my hon. Friend takes the safety of children in secure training centres extremely seriously. However, there have recently been two deaths in such centres, one during an incident of restraint. I gave some statistics about the thousands of times in which restraint has been used in secure training centres. What has the Home Office done to investigate the methods of restraint used by...

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: Will my hon. Friend tell me why the Home Office turned down the recommendation from the coroner at the Joseph Scholes inquest that there should be a public inquiry? I know that he has taken a great deal of action in this regard, but surely there is a good case for a public inquiry.

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: The hon. Gentleman speaks from huge experience as a judge and stipendiary magistrate. He has expressed his support for all the positive programmes that have been introduced. However, there is no reason why any of them could not be carried on with young people within the care system, as an attachment to supervision orders in care proceedings. There is surely no reason why any of these measures...

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I am grateful for the opportunity to initiate the debate. I know, because of the hon. Members present, that it will be a high-quality debate. It is a shame that so far there are not more Members present to take part in it. I regard it as a gross failure by us all that this debate is needed. It is an indictment of this country that it leads the wealthy, developed, powerful nations in the...

Young People (Custody) (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I agree. The hon. Gentleman makes a fair point: some young people misguidedly relish their appearances on the front page. Some look to the day when an antisocial behaviour order will be imposed on them. The introduction of such legislation and such a means of dealing with young people shows a complete misunderstanding of their psychology. As much as anyone, I have seen the way in which crime...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Office: Prisons (31 Jan 2005)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I am ashamed to have been a Member of Parliament over the past eight years, during which 16 children have died in prison. That is coupled with the ghastly fact that we have closed down 24 places in local authority secure children's homes, where those children could have been kept safe. Is it not time for the Home Office entirely to review the position of children in prison to ensure that...
