– Scottish Parliament written question – answered on 21st January 2003.
To ask the Scottish Executive what its response is to the statement in paragraph 58 of the Audit Scotland report, Dealing with offending by young people, that "the data, as currently recorded, do not indicate the number of cases where the reporter's decision is influenced by non-availability of resources, but it is likely that there are significant numbers of young people who could benefit from a voluntary service who do not receive it."
Decisions by Reporters and Children’s Hearings should be based solely on what is in the best interests of children. It is for other agencies to provide the resources to implement those decisions.
