I have noted the findings of the Prison Service Pay Review Body (PSPRB) report for 2021/22 pay, including those in relation to Band 3 Prison Officer pay.

Our future pay strategy, including proposals for any pay increases across grades, will be set out in future submissions to the PSPRB in accordance with the pay round process.
