This internal report was compiled so we could review the incident and take appropriate action, which we have now done. As such, and as I said in my answer of 9 February 2018 to Question 126526, the report contains in-depth details of the safety and security procedures at HMP Birmingham which, if released, could compromise security arrangements at the establishment. It is not therefore appropriate to release any part of it and we will not be doing so.
