These Regulations revoke the Prosecution of Offences (Youth Courts Time Limits) Regulations 1999 which provide for maximum periods in relation to proceedings in youth courts. Accordingly, there will be no maximum periods in proceedings in youth courts. Any maximum periods which have already begun will continue to have effect as if the regulations had not been revoked.
