6. Plaid Cymru Debate: Devolved powers and funding (10 Jul 2024)

Adam Price: ...that have led to this situation, where crime is blighting our streets, are the very institutions that should maintain and retain the powers. Look at the terrible scandal that's happening in Parc prison at the moment; the level of the incarceration of our ethnic minority communities in Wales—the highest in the world, it seems; certainly in western Europe. Are these the institutions, the...

1. Questions to the First Minister: The Impact of the General Election ( 9 Jul 2024)

Vaughan Gething: I think the Member makes an important point about the real crisis we see across prisons. It's frightening to have seen what the inspectorate has recently said about the conditions in prisons: the overcrowding, the crumbling conditions as well—a wholly inappropriate environment—and also how full our prisons are getting as well. We're at the point where the UK Government may be forced to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Budget (No. 2) Bill: Second Stage ( 2 Jul 2024)

Joanne Bunting: ...of concern, especially because, as I said in previous financial debates and as is evident from the Bill, the vast majority of the Department's budget is demand-led. It is taken up by the PSNI, the Prison Service, the Courts and Tribunals Service and through legal aid spend. As a result, there is little, if any, scope to reduce spend without impacting severely on the delivery of vital...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Finance: Police Pensions: Overpayment ( 2 Jul 2024)

Joanne Bunting: Thank you, Minister. This follows a similar debacle involving prison officers' pensions, which is rumbling on. Clearly, something is going badly awry if those pensions are being miscalculated to that extent and errors have not been noticed for as long as 16 years. I am aware that there is also DOJ involvement. Will the Minister undertake a review to establish what is going on, which has led...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Cabinet (Meetings) (27 Jun 2024)

John Swinney: No, because we have exceeded our commitment to recruit 800 additional mental health workers to accident and emergency departments, GP practices, police station custody suites and prisons. We have also invested in mental health support in our schools and the appointment of mental health counsellors in order try to provide early intervention to reduce the crystallisation of demand for child and...

9. Plaid Cymru Debate: Wales and the next UK Government (26 Jun 2024)

Rhys ab Owen: More recently, courts were closed and prisons were built with no consideration at all given to the real needs of the people of Wales. Welsh women were sent to prisons hundreds of miles away from their homes. And now we are seeing the role’s total failure to deliver fair funding for Wales.

Scottish Parliament: Circular Economy (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (25 Jun 2024)

Edward Mountain: ...—the minister said this at a committee meeting—that that is too much money. I remind everyone that in the previous parliamentary session we agreed that, for killing mountain hares, the maximum prison sentence should be five years and an unlimited fine. Yet it appears that £5,000 for fly-tipping, which could kill more wildlife than anything else, is completely unacceptable. We ought to...

2. Questions to the Counsel General: Backlog of Court Cases (25 Jun 2024)

Mick Antoniw: ...has been a 346 per cent increase in the number of adult rape cases in the Crown Court's outstanding case load between 31 December 2019 and 31 December 2023; and 16,005 people who are remanded in prison have been waiting for trial or sentencing, with 2023 recording the highest level for at least 50 years. Yes, I do welcome the imminent arrival of a new Labour government, and a government...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister’s Question Time: Parole System (20 Jun 2024)

Liam Kerr: Last week, The Courier reported: “A new parole hearing date has been confirmed for Angus killer Tasmin Glass as she seeks release from prison after serving only half her ten-year sentence ... Her case will now be considered by the Parole Board ... for a third time on July 26 ... the day before a memorial motorbike ride in honour of her victim Steven...

3. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice: Refugee Week: Our home (18 Jun 2024)

Tom Giffard: ...know that there has been some strong local opposition towards the development and residents have now set up a local action group. Opponents believe that the houses not only look but feel like a prison and are dismayed by the fact that they were not consulted on the proposals for the site, with no engagement with the local community. Rather than consulting the community and taking them...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: PSNI: Pensions and Injury Benefits (17 Jun 2024)

Naomi Long: ...consideration on it. In March 2020, the Northern Ireland Audit Office concluded its report on injury-on-duty schemes for officers and looked at injury-on-duty awards made to former police and prison officers for injuries sustained while they were on duty. One recommendation of the report was to set up a steering group comprised of key representatives from DOJ, DOF, the Police Service, the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Terrorism-related Offenders (17 Jun 2024)

Naomi Long: .... In discharging that function, MARA brings together the Department of Justice and supervising officers appointed on the Department’s behalf, along with representatives from the Northern Ireland Prison Service and the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Terrorist risk offenders are managed under MARA from the point of conviction through to the expiry of their licence period. Under the...

Scottish Parliament: Public Service Investment (13 Jun 2024)

Shona Robison: intervention, and I hope that he feels better soon. According to a briefing that was provided to the newspapers this morning, non-protected areas of spending, which include courts, prisons, local government, jobcentres, the police and immigration services, would be cut under a Labour UK Government. Can Mark Griffin give us a categorical assurance that that will not happen?

6. Debate on the Equality and Social Justice Committee Report, 'Actions, not words: towards an anti-racist Wales by 2030' (12 Jun 2024)

Sioned Williams: ...are over-represented at all levels of the criminal justice system in Wales. Based on the most recent statistics that we have, in 2021, 51 out of every 10,000 black people in Wales were in prison, compared to 14 white people, and more black people were also under the care of the probation services. The length of sentences is also longer for black people than white defendants. In the same...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — The Executive Office: Communities in Transition (10 Jun 2024)

Emma Little-Pengelly: ...CIT in west Belfast since 2019, there has been the investment of approximately £3·7 million of projects delivered in the area, including health and well-being, community safety, employability, ex-prisoner support and restorative practice. From research, it is clear that those local initiatives continue to be at the forefront of tackling a range of problems in west Belfast.

6. Welsh Conservatives Debate: The First Minister ( 5 Jun 2024)

Joyce Watson: I think integrity, respect, judgment and timing are everything. And what have you done today? My father was involved in the D-day landing. Before that, he'd been a prisoner of war for four years. What you've done today is put a focus here. You have prevented people like me being represented by the First Minister down in Portsmouth. I spent this morning watching those veterans. If my father...

4. 90-second Statements ( 5 Jun 2024)

James Evans: ...became a training ground for the Allies. Locations like Mumbles served as a rehearsal site for US troops, simulating everything from unloading ships under fire, treating casualties and handling prisoners. Mock hospitals were even constructed, like the one near Carmarthen, on today's site of the Glangwili General Hospital. Wales's dedication to the war effort was profound. The unwavering...

3. Topical Questions: HM Prison Parc ( 5 Jun 2024)

Lesley Griffiths: ...with the senior leadership team, so obviously the officials in the probation service, the representatives for Wales, and I met with the deputy directors—that was on one occasion—from Parc prison. And we did discuss just that point that you've made around the impact on families—well, so many people, communities and families. They are undertaking work, but that work needs to continue...
