star this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister has set out the timetable for further devolution to Scotland to be considered. Much work is also underway to ensure we have a balanced devolution settlement - fair to people in all parts of the United Kingdom.</p><p>For Scotland, we are implementing the Scotland Act 2012, we have published a Command Paper on the parties' proposals for further devolution and Lord Smith of Kelvin is overseeing the cross-party process to take forward the devolution commitments for Scotland. For Wales, the Wales Bill is progressing through Parliament and the Secretary of State has met the Welsh Leaders of the political parties in Westminster and there will be further discussions with them and with political leaders in the Assembly in the coming weeks. In England, work continues to devolve more powers from Whitehall to our cities and regions and the Government is examining the various constitutional issues that arise from further devolution, including the so-called West Lothian Question. For Northern Ireland, work continues to ensure that the devolved institutions function effectively.</p><p>The House, and others, will be kept updated and have the chance to contribute to these important discussions.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Temporary release can be an important tool in helping prisoners to re-adjust safely and productively to life in the community. It is allowed to prisoners only towards the end of their time in custody and only after a thorough risk assessment. We are changing the approach to temporary release to give even greater weight to public protection and the need for prisoners to demonstrate how the release will aid their rehabilitation and increase their chances of leading a crime free life on release.</p><p> </p><p>Prisoners are only allowed to take driving lessons if the licence is required to help their rehabilitation, for example improving future employment prospects, thus reducing their likelihood of re-offending. Prisoners are expected to fund the lessons and tests out of their own pockets but may be offered some assistance in exceptional circumstances.</p><p> </p><p>The following table details the number of prisoners who were released on temporary licence for driving lesson or tests in 2013 by offence type; ie the principal offence for the sentence that they were serving when temporarily released:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Offence group</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2013</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Violence</p></td><td><p>89</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sexual</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Robbery</p></td><td><p>29</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Burglary</p></td><td><p>2</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Theft and Handling</p></td><td><p>5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Fraud and Forgery</p></td><td><p>3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Drugs</p></td><td><p>51</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Motoring</p></td><td><p>0</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Other</p></td><td><p>10</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Not known</p></td><td><p>1</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>TOTAL</p></td><td><p>190</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em>Data Sources and Quality</em>: These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.</p><p> </p><p>190 offenders were granted temporary release for driving lessons or tests in 2013, compared to 215 in 2008.</p>
