Young adult offenders are not placed in secure training centres or secure children's homes. The Youth Justice Board began collecting comparative data on assaults by trainees in under-18 young offender institutions, secure training centres and secure children's homes in April 2007. The following table provides this data for the period April 2007 to January 2008. For earlier data, collected by the Prison Service following different recording principles, and relating solely to young offender institutions, I refer the hon. Lady to the reply I gave on 28 November 2007, Hansard, column 495W to Mr.Paterson.
