To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with the Catholic Prison Advice and Care Trust in the last five years; and what assessment they have made of the work of that charity.

We have a longstanding relationship with the Prison Advice and Care Trust (PACT), and we recognise the crucial role that they, and other Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) organisations, carry out in supporting offenders and delivering rehabilitative services. I am pleased to note, too, that PACT have recently been awarded the contract for the provision of family engagement services for the female estate.

We will continue to engage with PACT as we take forward Lord Farmer’s recommendations as part of our wider prison reform agenda.
