The table below provides the numbers of enforcement notices have been issued in relation to prison fire safety arrangements in each of the last 12 quarters.

We take any such enforcement notices seriously and produce an action plan to ensure that compliance is quickly achieved whenever they are issued.

We are taking urgent action to improve safety and decency in our prisons, including spending up to £2.5 billion to create a modern and efficient estate fit for the future.
