§ Mr. Mark Carlisle
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether young persons sentenced under section 53(2) of the Children and Young Persons Act 1933 and detained in detention centres or prisons throughout the period of their sentence are entitled to remission.
§ Mr. Mellor
No. Section 53(2) sentences do not attract remission: those detained under this power are eligible for release on licence under the terms of section 61(1) of the Criminal Justice Act 1967 throughout their sentence.
