To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 6 May 2012, Official Report, column 179W, on prisoners: email, how many contacts were made in each prison in each of the last three years.

I believe the hon. Member is referring to my response of 16 May 2012, Hansard, column 179W, rather than 6 May. As I stated in that response it is not possible to provide the number of contacts each prisoner has received through the scheme as such information is not held centrally. To provide such information would require the collection of data from each prison and this could be achieved only at disproportionate cost.
