Question S1W-19366

To ask the Scottish Executive, further to the answer to question S1W-18203 by Mr Jim Wallace on 28 September 2001, whether it will give a breakdown of the table in Appendix 5 to the Scottish Prison Service Annual Report and Accounts 1999-2000 on "breaches of discipline committed and punishments awarded in establishments" to show how many times disciplinary action was taken against prisoners in each prison, including HM Prison Kilmarnock, in 1999-2000.

The tables give details of the number of breaches of discipline committed and the punishments awarded in establishments during the financial year 2000-01.
