EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Rules)

These Rules amend the Young Offender Institution Rules 2000 (“the 2000 Rules”) in order to reflect changes to the powers and responsibilities of directors in contracted out prions within the meaning of the Criminal Justice Act 1991.Prison includes a young offenders institution for the purposes of the 1991 Act. The changes in question are made by section 19 of the Offender Management Act 2007 (c 21) so as to enable a director to conduct certain disciplinary hearings relating to prisoners and to take specified measures relating to the segregation and restraint of prisoners, whether or not the need for those measures is urgent.

These Rules remove references from the 2000 Rules that reflected the prohibition on directors carrying out those tasks which was in place prior to the changes made by the 2007 Act.
