To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what the total number of offender work placement hours spent on maintenance tasks was in each year for which information is available, by prison.
Records of the hours of work done by prisoners are not centrally held, and individual prisons will keep their own records in relation to this. This is due to the fact that this information relates to the rehabilitation of prisoners, which is within the operational remit of prison governors. Gathering this information would represent disproportionate cost, and not be achievable within this timeframe.
Prison work programmes may vary, and be organised though schemes operated by facilities management providers or organised by individual prison governors.
