Cuts Watch # -1: Youth Justice Board
It’s nice to note the occasional victory, a cut withdrawn. Last year Nicola reported on the plans to abolish the Youth Justice Board and to hive off its job of overseeing the youth justice system in England and Wales to a division of the Ministry of Justice. The government has now announced that it plans to retain the Board (scroll down to column 1070); it seems that the abolition became untenable after this summer’s riots.
