Sadiq Khan MP, Labour’s Shadow Justice Secretary, commenting on the Government's announcement on youth justice, said:

"This announcement is an admission of failure from Nick Clegg and Chris Grayling - building the Secure College won't even begin until after the next general election. 

"Education is crucial in reforming criminals but building one new establishment in the future will do little to reduce the reoffending rate across the rest of the country. 

"The Government has also failed to explain how much their plans will cost nor how they will be funded, leaving fears that other parts of the youth justice budget will be cut to pay for it."
