My Lords, this is a damning report. Perhaps I may draw the Minister's attention to the Chief Inspector's introductory comment:

"This is a picture of a prison that needs urgently to energise its staff and management".

What steps can the Government take to ensure that the recommendations in this report, as well as the catalogue of recommendations in the 1998 report which have not been followed through, are fully implemented?
