§ Mrs. Brooke
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what his Department's guidelines are to young offenders institutions in England and Wales regarding formal child protection procedures for juveniles in prison, what his estimate is of the number of young offenders institutions in England and Wales that implement formal child protection procedures; and if he will list the young offenders institutions in England and Wales that have formal child protection procedures for juveniles in their care. 
§ Hilary Benn
In January 2002, Her Majesty's Prison Service published Prison Service Order 4950 which revised child protection protocols and policy; a copy can be found in the Library. It instructs governors as to the steps to be taken when instigating formal child protection procedures for juveniles held by the Prison Service.
In accordance with the Department of Health's 1999 guidance "Working Together", a child protection committee has been established within each young offender institution (Y0I).
In consultation with the local area child protection committee, a local policy has been developed detailing arrangements for acting on allegations or concerns that a young person may have suffered or is at risk of suffering significant harm.
The 18 YO1s in England and Wales that implement formal child protection procedures are:
- Lancaster Farms
- Stoke Heath
- Thorn Cross
- Warren Hill
- Bullwood Hall
- New Hall
- Eastwood Park
