To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to the recommendations in the report, Management and supervision of men convicted of sexual offences, published by HM Inspectorate of Probation in January 2019, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that the Excellence and Quality in Process is improved.
We are grateful to H M inspectorates for their helpful report. We will publish an action plan shortly, setting out our comprehensive response to the report’s recommendations and conclusions. The Inspectorates recognised that the EQuiP (Excellence and Quality in Process) system is a work in progress. We will consider the report’s observations in relation to EQuiP as we continue to develop the system.
