Raising the age of criminal responsibility

By Zoe Keene at 00:00

Raising the age of criminal responsibility It would appear that this UK Government are quietly planning to raise the age of criminal responsibility from the current age of 10 to the age of 12. There is a bill before the House of Lords which proposes to do just that. There has been no publicity surrounding this and no mention of this in the last election manifesto. Is there a reason the UK Government want to raise the age of criminal responsibility quietly?
