He will know that in the past two years of the Youth Justice Board's operation there has been a reduction of some 27 per cent in the use of custody for young offenders.

International Development: Universal Primary Education — Motion to Take Note (22 Jun 2010)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, whatever reasons lie behind the scheduling of today's debate, it is fitting that in these Houses of Parliament, while the other place is wrestling with the state of our finances and debating the Budget, this House should be addressing the millennium development goals. Whatever our straitened economic circumstances, in the context of the global picture and the parable of Dives and...
