To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, with reference to the Official statistics announcement, Community Performance Quarterly, update to June 2021, as updated on the 26 October 2020, how he plans to consult stakeholders on the future form that probation performance statistics take; and when he plans to publish his Department's plans for future statistical publications on probation performance.

The Ministry of Justice’s official statistics announcement of 26 October 2020 set out the move from the previous quarterly publication of probation statistics to an annual publication in 2020/21. It also flagged the need for a new publication once reforms to unify delivery of probation services had taken effect in June 2021, to reflect changes to the performance framework for probation under this new delivery model. The Ministry of Justice will consult users of these statistics on proposals on new arrangements for future publication of probation performance data during the autumn of 2021. The consultation will be undertaken in line with relevant Government Statistical Service guidance (which is informed by the Code of Practice on Official Statistics).
