36.—(1) This paragraph applies where, immediately before the commencement of section 80(2) there was in force an order ("a criminal care order") made—

  1. (a) under section 7(7)(a) of the Children and Young Persons Act 1969 (alteration in treatment of young offenders etc.); or
  2. (b) under section 15(1) of that Act, on discharging a supervision order made under section 7(7)(b) of that Act.

(2) The criminal care order shall continue to have effect until the end of the period of six months beginning with the day on which section 80(2) comes into force unless it is brought to an end earlier in accordance with—

  1. (a) the provisions of the Act of 1969 preserved by sub-paragraph (3)(a); or
  2. (b) this paragraph.

(3) While the criminal care order remains in force, any relevant provisions—

  1. (a) of the Act of 1969; and
  2. (b) of the Child Care Act 1980.

shall continue to have effect with respect to it.

(4) While the criminal care order remains in force, a court may, on the application of the appropriate person, make—

  1. (a) a residence order;
  2. (b) a care order or a supervision order under section 28;
  3. (c) an education supervision order under section 33 (regardless of subsection (6) of that section); or
  4. (d) an order falling within sub-paragraph (5), and shall, on making any of those orders, discharge the criminal care order.

(5) the order mentioned in sub-paragraph (4)(d) is an order having effect as if it were a supervision order of a kind mentioned in section 12AA of the Act of 1969 (as inserted by paragraph 20 of Schedule 10), that is to say, a supervision order—

  1. (a) imposing a requirement that the child shall live for a specified period in local authority accommodation; but
  2. (b) in relation to which the conditions mentioned in subsection (4) of section 12AA are not required to be satisfied.

(6) The maximum period which may be specified in an order made under sub-paragraph (4)(d) is six months and such an order may stipulate that the child shall not live with a named person.

(7) Where this paragraph applies, section 5 of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (rehabilitation periods for particular sentences) shall have effect regardless of the repeals in it made by this Act.

(8) In sub-paragraph (4) "appropriate person" means—

  1. (a) in the case of an application for a residence order, any person (other than a local authority) who has the leave of the court;
  2. (b) in the case of an application for an education supervision order, a local education authority; and
  3. (c) in any other case, the local authority to whose care the child was committed by the order.
