star this property answer text <p>As set out on the 26 June at the Justice Select Committee and in the 2017 manifesto, we remain committed to building up to 10,000 modern and decent prison places to replace old, expensive and unsuitable accommodation. We will deliver this through a combination of both new prisons and the reconfiguration of existing establishments, to enable governors to achieve better outcomes.</p><p> </p><p>While our ambition remains the same, the way that we will deliver this programme has changed meaning that a direct comparison to the £1.3 billion figure is not appropriate. As the Chancellor set out in the budget on 30 October, we now intend to build the first two prisons through public capital at Wellingborough, which is due to open in 2021 and Glen Parva, which we expect to open in 2022 and we continue to explore funding options for the remaining prison places. We are planning to launch a competition later this year to establish a framework from which the operators of the new prisons will be chosen.</p>

As per the answer to PQ 184996, please note that offenders may appear both within the caseload figures of court orders (including community orders and suspended sentence orders), and post-release supervision.</p><p> </p><p>The National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies work closely with other agencies to support offenders in the community. When an offender being supervised by Probation dies, the Probation provider must examine the circumstances of the death and identify areas to improve practice. While we work extremely closely with each offender before and after release to help them find the support they need, we do not have sole responsibility for caring for these offenders. We are clear, however, that they should receive the same level of care as other members of the public.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Any sexual assault that takes place in prison is deplorable, and all reported incidents are referred to the police for investigation. In 2017 less than 1.3% of all reported assaults on prisoners were sexual assaults. We are committed to reducing violence in prison and we encourage prisoners to report assaults, so that we can take action against perpetrators and support victims. The most important support that we can provide is to ensure that all allegations are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly, and that appropriate action is taken if they are proven.</p><p> </p><p>The nature of any further support provided will depend on the circumstances of the case and the prisoner’s preferences, as well as an assessment of the risk of repeat victimisation. At its most straightforward this involves ensuring that further contact between person reporting the assault and the alleged perpetrator is prevented. Where this involves moving one or more prisoners between wings or prisons, it must not be to the reporter’s detriment. Ongoing support may include increased supervision of the reporter by prison staff, who may also work with them to build their sense of security and to restore their confidence. We expect our new key workers to play a growing role in work such as this. Finally, it may also include referral to other sources of help, such as peer supporters, healthcare staff, or more specialist support services from outside the prison.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As set out in my response to PQ178535, one of the measures Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) implemented after stepping in to run HM Prison Birmingham was to temporarily reduce the operational capacity by 300 places. The capacity reduction was not immediate and was delivered over time with the gradual reduction of the prison’s population through a combination of: end of sentence releases, diversion of court allocations to other prisons in the region and routine allocations of sentenced prisoners to other establishments as part of their sentence progression as is normal for a prison with a ‘local’ function.</p><p>Men who were transferred were subject to the same criteria as all prison moves, taking into account a range of factors such as security category, resettlement needs and release address, offending behaviour needs and personal circumstances.</p> more like this
