One of the most complicated, ambitious and exciting of these plans was called Project Daedalus, this is our plan to introduce a new regime for young offenders' institutions and reduce the levels of youth re-offending.
I described this plan as complicated because its delivery involves a range of organisations, different levels of government and significant up front expenditure. I have worked closely with the Met Police, the Prison Service, Youth Justice Board, National Offender Management Service, Probation Service, local councils, London Development Agency and a number of voluntary sector organisations to put the plan in place. This morning we launched the plan.
Kit Malthouse, Pam Chesters and I joined Boris to officially open Heron Wing, the pilot for our new regime. Oh Jack Straw was there too.
