To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to the answer of 6 December 2007, Official Report, column 1474W, on prisons: education, what the earliest anticipated date is that infrastructure could be in place to process those sentenced to imprisonment for public protection sentences in Northern Ireland.

Infrastructure is already in place within Northern Ireland prisons to undertake risk assessments, provide programmes and work directly with dangerous offenders to reduce their risk. The impact of the proposed legislation on the Prison Service will increase over time and additional infrastructure will be in place when it is required.
