Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prison Officers: Retirement (28 Mar 2017)

Sam Gyimah: The recently published White Paper on prison reform announced a major shake-up of the prison system with 2,500 extra prisons officers and new security measures to tackle drones, phones and drugs. This is a key priority for the Government as we seek to make sure our prisons are safe, decent and secure and places of reform. Safe systems of work and health and safety systems are in place across...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Reoffenders (8 Mar 2017)

Lord Keen of Elie: Data published by my department on the impact of employment on reduced re-offending relies on data drawn together from across the Criminal Justice System, supplemented by data on the employment and benefit status of offenders from a data sharing agreement between MoJ, DWP and HMRC. That data does not enable any comparative assessment of reoffending rates for ex-prisoners who have or have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Ex-offenders (9 Jan 2017)

Damian Hinds: First of all, my response is that this has been a challenge for successive Governments for many years. We do need to do better, but there is good work going on. Ultimately, to improve the situation, we need more prisoners to be work-ready, and we need more employers to be willing to take the plunge and take on a prisoner. Having governors controlling skills provision in prisons will have a...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Offenders: Rehabilitation (8 Dec 2016)

Sam Gyimah: Protection of the public is our key priority. This includes taking effective action to ensure that court orders are properly enforced.

Scottish Parliament: Women Offenders (Custodial Sentences) (16 Nov 2016)

Michael Matheson: I agree with Fulton McGregor. Short-term custodial sentences remove people from their communities, jobs, families and housing—the very things that we know support desistance. We need to make sure that the approach that we take is focused on reducing the risk of re-offending; we know that community disposals are much more effective in reducing the risk of an individual committing...

Although entrepreneurship may help some—I will return to this point, which...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prison Sentences (12 Sep 2016)

Sam Gyimah: Offenders serving sentences of Imprisonment for Public Protection (IPP) continue to be detained beyond their tariff where the independent Parole Board determines that the level of risk of harm and re-offending which they pose is too great to be safely managed in the community. The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) continues to prioritise IPP offenders for courses and provides...

Phillip Lee: The Justice Data Lab (JDL) provides re-offending outcomes to organisations working with offenders to help them assess the impact of their work on reducing re-offending. Analysis by the JDL, looking at individuals who received support provided by 32 Women’s Centres throughout England between 2010 and 2012, noted a reduction in re‐offending of between 1 and 9 percentage points....

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisoners: Qualifications (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Faulks: Re-offending rates are not currently available broken down by different levels of education attainment. We want to improve education so prisoners are less likely to commit crime on release. That is why we are investing in a modern prison estate, where governors are empowered to run prisons in the way they think best, and prisoners are given a chance to work or learn. It is only through more...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (24 May 2016)

Lord German: Like many other noble Lords, I shall also address the issue of prison reform. I find myself echoing the sentiments of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Rochester. I suspect that the pendulum is moving creakingly from the space of retribution towards the space of rehabilitation, but it is important to see where this legislation fits perfectly into the glove of the reform that is...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Offenders: Learning Disability (21 Apr 2016)

Andrew Selous: When considering whether to discharge offenders detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 from hospital, the Secretary of State or the First-Tier Tribunal (Mental Health) must decide whether the detention criteria in the Act continue to be met. These are whether the person is suffering from a mental disorder of a nature or degree that warrants detention in hospital for treatment; or it is...

Andrew Selous: The Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) provide a statutory framework within which criminal justice and social care agencies are required to assess and manage the risk presented by sexual and violent offenders, with a view to reducing re-offending and protecting the public.

Applying the benchmark to an establishment involves two elements: the regime refresh and a new approach to staffing, which...
