As set out in the government response to Charlie Taylor’s Review of the Youth Justice System, we will work with the Home Office to consider this recommendation once the Justice Select Committee's inquiry into youth criminal records concludes. The Home Office and the Ministry of Justice have provided written evidence to the Committee which can be found at: http://data.parliament.uk/writtenevidence/committeeevidence.svc/evidencedocument/justice-committee/disclosure-of-youth-criminal-records/written/43085.html
