Any non-consensual sexual activity is also a crime, whatever the age of the victim and whatever the relationship between the victim and perpetrator.</p><p> </p><p>I recognise that there are concerns about those who might abuse their position of power over a 16 or 17-year-old to pressure them into engaging in a sexual relationship. Such behaviour is very likely to be caught by the robust laws we already have in place,</p><p> </p><p>However, we remain absolutely committed to protecting children and young people from sexual abuse and we want to ensure that existing offences are being used effectively to tackle this behaviour, and that those working with young people understand their responsibilities and act appropriately.</p><p> </p><p>My department, working closely with colleagues across government, is taking forward a review of the existing law, to check that that it is working effectively and ensuring young people are protected.</p>

The Youth Justice Board has developed a new performance assessment process for Youth Offending Teams and we have increased the availability of liaison and diversion services across England.</p><p> </p><p>Work is also underway to review our criminal records processes and we have established a dedicated youth justice disproportionality team who are taking forward work to explain or address disproportionate representation and outcomes within the system. In addition, the HMCTS court reform programme has a specific workstream considering the needs of children and we are also undertaking a review of the use of remand for children.</p><p> </p><p>Work has therefore been completed, or is underway, in relation to every recommendation made in Charlie Taylor’s review and we will continue to use the review and the specific recommendations made to inform our work as we take our reform programme forward.</p>

Therefore, having or not having ‘formal written procedures’ does not in itself dictate the quality of care for LAC.</p><p> </p><p>Children detained under criminal justice legislation in secure establishments are subject to the Children Act 1989. The responsible authority continues to have responsibilities towards them in the same way as they would to other children in need – recognising that the court, by sentencing the child, has determined where he/she will live. The duties and expectations placed on all local authorities in relation to effectively caring for looked-after children and care leavers, including where they are detained in the secure estate, are set out in the relevant legislation and accompanying statutory guidance.</p>
