James Bulger was murdered on Merseyside in 1993
Justice Secretary Jack Straw has agreed to meet the mother of James Bulger after one of the two-year-old's killers was taken back into custody.
Mr Straw acted after Jon Venables breached the terms of his licence after being released from prison in 2001.
Venables and Robert Thompson, both then 10, became the UK's youngest killers when they murdered James in 1993.
James's mother Denise Fergus wrote to Mr Straw after Venables' was sent back to jail earlier this week.
Details of how Venables breached his licence have not so far been released, although Home Secretary Alan Johnson has said he believes the public have a right to know.
