star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>I refer the Rt hon. Member to the answer my predecessor gave in June. We do not centrally hold data on the number of prisoners transferred from closed to open prisons for the time period requested or the time left to serve at the point of recategorisation and allocation to the open estate. Consequently, the information requested could be obtained only at disproportionate cost, as it would involve a manual trawl through the records of every prisoner transferred to an open prison in the last year to identify if they were over two years from their earliest release date at the point of recategorisation and then allocation to an open prison.</p><p> </p><p>Two years is considered to be the maximum time a prisoner should spend in open conditions. However, assessment of a prisoner’s individual risks and needs may support earlier categorisation to open conditions. Such cases must have the reasons for their categorisation fully documented and confirmed in writing by the Governing Governor.</p><p> </p><p>Categorisation and allocation to open prison is never an automatic progression. Public protection is foremost in the decision making process. Only prisoners who have successfully completed offending behaviour work essential to their risk reduction and whose risks are manageable in conditions of low security will be allocated to an open prison.</p><p /> <p>The earliest date on which an indeterminate sentence prisoner may be released from custody is on completion of his “tariff” – that is, the minimum period to be served in custody, as determined by the Court, for the purposes of retribution and deterrence. These prisoners do not have fixed release dates, so even if the data on transfers was readily available, it would not be possible to identify a length of time left to be served in these cases. The vast majority of indeterminate sentence prisoners will be transferred to open conditions only on a positive recommendation from the independent Parole Board. Where they can show that they have made exceptional progress and where there are no known or documented concerns about their risk of harm or risk of abscond, they may be transferred without a positive recommendation from the Parole Board.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>As at 30 June 2014, there were 24 determinate sentence prisoners held in open conditions with more than two years left to serve before their earliest release date and 18 indeterminate sentence prisoners in open conditions with more than two years left to serve before their tariff expiry[1].</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>Those prisoners with at least two more years left before their earliest release will either be serving a determinate sentence of four years or more, or an indeterminate sentence with a minimum tariff of two years or more. The earliest date on which an indeterminate sentence prisoner (ISP) may be released from custody is on completion of “tariff” – that is, the minimum period to be served in custody, as determined by the Court, for the purposes of retribution and deterrence.</p><p>Progression to open conditions is never automatic and only follows a satisfactory assessment of the prisoner’s reduction in risk to a level that is manageable in conditions of lower security. The assessment will take account of issues including successful completion of any offending behaviour programmes identified as essential to the risk reduction process and any security intelligence or other information that provides evidence of the prisoner’s trustworthiness for open conditions. For determinate sentence prisoners, this assessment is carried out by an operational manager in the holding prison. For ISPs, it generally involves a recommendation by the independent Parole Board.</p><p> </p><p>Once allocated to open prison, prisoners continue to be monitored and are returned to closed prison immediately if there are any concerns about their suitability for such conditions.</p><p> </p><p>When a prisoner moves to the less rigid structure of open conditions an assessment of how the prisoner will adapt to increasing responsibility. For many prisoners, in particular those such as life sentence prisoners, who have spent a considerable amount of time in custody; these can be important components for successful reintegration in the community and therefore a mechanism to help protect the public by reducing the likelihood of reoffending.</p><br /><p>[1] Please note that these figures do not include prisoners held in open conditions in non-predominant function open prisons, nor those held in open sites that are part of multi-site establishments performing different functions, nor those held in small (under 50 place) open units at predominant function closed prisons. Women and young adults are included in the figures.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>The Government is committed to providing emotional support to young people and young adults in Young Offender Institutions (YOIs). All young offender institutions and prisons are required to have procedures in place to identify, manage and support offenders in need of emotional support or at risk of harming themselves.</p><p> </p><p>These procedures include the Assessment, Care in Custody and Teamwork (ACCT) process which is an offender-centred, flexible care planning system designed to ensure that offenders at risk are managed in a way that is responsive to individual needs, including those related to age. A recent review of the ACCT process for young people made a number of recommendations that are being taken forward by the National Offender Management Service.</p><p> </p><p>NHS England provide a commissioned healthcare service to all YOIs which includes GPs, nurses and mental health professionals to support those with an identified physical or mental health need in custody. Support services provided under contract are equitable with those provided in the community.</p><p> </p><p>Healthcare services are supported by the chaplaincy team which offers a range of pastoral support services and by the Samaritans who provide free helpline access and train young offenders aged 18 and over to act as ‘Listeners’, that is, peer supporters for other young offenders who are in crisis.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>When sentencing a child or young person under the age 18, courts have a duty to have regard to the welfare of the offender, which includes their mental health.</p><p> </p><p>Youth Offending Teams provide courts with a pre-sentence report for each young person, including information about their mental health and any self-harming or risk taking behaviour. Where emotional and mental health issues have been identified, a referral to the mental health specialist worker should be made for completion of a Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool which will provide details about the support and type of intervention programme needed, tailored to their needs. The pre-sentence report should assess the potential impact of any custodial sentence imposed by the court (including the impact on mental health).</p><p> </p><p>In January 2014, the Government announced £25 million of funding for the Liaison and Diversion Programme, which will join up police and courts with mental health services and to fund the provision of mental health professionals to give prompt and appropriate treatment.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>This Programme, commissioned by NHS England, identifies, assesses and refers people of all ages with a wide range of mental health and other issues on first contact with the criminal justice system. A person assessed with single or multiple vulnerabilities will be referred to the appropriate treatment or support service and care and/or support will be instigated.</p>
