Constitutional Affairs Committee Sentencing Guidelines

As from 9 May 2007 responsibility for Sentencing Guidelines transferred to the Ministry of Justice.

The Committee formally agreed to monitor the draft Sentencing Guidelines issued by the Sentencing Guidelines Council in the same way that the Home Affairs Committee has done up to now. It will start by inquiring into the recently produced draft Sentencing Guidelines relating to Bail.
