I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to my hon. Friend Mark Pawsey earlier today.

The Green Paper “Breaking the Cycle” contained proposals relating to community payback, which have been confirmed by the Government. Plans are in place to implement these changes and the results of the first competition, to administer community payback in London, will be announced very shortly. My assessment is that this competition, and the preparation for competition in all other trusts, has substantially improved all elements of operational delivery.
