star this property answer text <p>We remain committed to reducing crowding across the prison estate. In the year to March 2019, the proportion of prisoners held in crowded accommodation was 22.5%, down from 24.2% the previous year and levels of around 25% experienced since 2004.</p><p>The Prime Minister’s pledge to invest up to £2.5 billion to create 10,000 additional prison places will have a positive impact on lowering the proportion of crowding in the prison estate, providing accommodation that is safe, decent and uncrowded. However, the extent to which the proportion of prisoners held in crowded accommodation will reduce will be dependent on future prison population levels.</p><p>Sentencing must match the severity of the crime and protecting the public will always be our priority. The sentencing reforms announced by the Government will ensure serious violent and sexual offenders spend longer in prison. The impact on the prison population will build up gradually over a number of years, and we will ensure that we have enough places for offenders sent by the courts.</p>

star this property answer text <p>HM Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) is taking decisive action to stop mobile phones from entering prison and, where they do get in, finding them and stopping them from working.</p><p> </p><p>HMPPS already has significant powers to search people on entry to prison. We are investing £100 million in prison security with tough airport-style security and X-ray body scanners to detect contraband such as mobile phones, hidden inside prisoners’ bodies</p><p> </p><p>During a prisoner’s period of detention HMPPS may conduct searches of the person, property, cell and area searches, aided by dedicated search teams, metal-detecting scanners and phone detection technology.</p><p> </p><p>To strengthen HMPPS’ ability to find mobile phones and stop them from working, last year amendments were made to the Prisons (Interference with Wireless Telegraphy Act) 2012. These amendments would enable public communications providers, such as a mobile phone network operator, to be authorised to interfere with wireless telegraphy in prisons. Working with mobile network operators, as industry experts, will place HMPPS in a better position to develop future-proofed solutions. In addition, Telecommunication Restriction Orders have allowed HMPPS to block the use of specific mobile phones in prisons.</p><p> </p><p>In the meantime, HMPPS’ award winning Digital Investigations Unit works with prisons to identify offenders accessing websites and shuts their access down quickly. In 2018, over 594 social media profiles were removed.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The decision to remand an individual in custody or to grant bail is solely a matter for the courts acting in accordance with the law. The court may decide to impose conditions to ensure the defendant attends court, does not commit another offence and does not interfere with justice. Conditions that may be imposed include, but are not limited to, curfews, surrender of passports, securities, sureties, and electronic monitoring.</p><p> </p><p>Matters relating to the consideration of bail, including bail conditions that may be imposed by the courts, are set out in the Bail Act 1976. Any changes to this would therefore involve making changes to primary legislation. However, the Government has no plans at present to amend the Bail Act to limit the discretion of the courts.</p> more like this
