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

The SPS recently awarded a three-year contract, with options to extend, for the provision of pharmaceutical goods and professional services to its directly managed prisons.

The contract commenced on 1 April 2010 and the initial three-year period will cease on 31 March 2013.
