Question S3W-35570

To ask the Scottish Executive what body is responsible for monitoring the behaviour of prisoners on temporary release.

Kenny MacAskill: I have asked John Ewing, Chief Executive of the Scottish Prison Service, to respond. His response is as follows:

The conduct of prisoners on temporary release is governed by licence conditions, set by the Scottish Prison Service. Any breaches of these conditions which are brought to the attention of the Prison Service may result in the revocation of the licence.
