§ 23. Mrs. Castle
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what guidance he has given to magistrates on using the Children and Young Persons Act, 1969, for supervision orders to probation officers relating to older children showing behaviour problems.
§ Mr. Carlisle
None, Sir. The decision whether to make a supervision order in respect of a particular young person and the designation of the supervisor are matters for the juvenile court in accordance with its powers under the Act.
