Justice written question – answered on 1st April 2008.
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many reports of (a) prisoner on prisoner and (b) prisoner on officer assaults were received from each (i) secure training centre, (ii) young offender institution and (iii) secure children's home in each year since 2000; and if he will make a statement.
Young adult offenders are not placed in secure training centres or secure children's homes. The Youth Justice Board began collecting comparative data on assaults by trainees in under-18 young offender institutions, secure training centres and secure children's homes in April 2007. The following table provides this data for the period April 2007 to January 2008. For earlier data, collected by the Prison Service following different recording principles, and relating solely to young offender institutions, I refer the hon. Lady to the reply I gave on
