Joint Committee on Human Rights
The deadline for written submissions has passed.
Serious concerns have been raised about the conditions and treatment of children in detention. These include the use of restraint, which still includes techniques which involve deliberately inflicting pain, and solitary confinement, which can increase risk of self-harm and long term developmental and psychiatric problems.
Evidence given by Edward Argar MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Ministry of Justice, Peter Gormley, Deputy Director for Casework, Partnerships Business and Change, Youth Custody Service, Jonathan Marron, Director General, Community and Social Care, Department of Health and Social Care, and Teresa Fenech, Director of Nursing and Quality Assurance, Specialised Commissioning, NHS England.
