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 /> <p>It is standard practice for the Major Projects Authority (MPA) to undertake assessments of major projects and programmes, such as the Transforming Rehabilitation (TR) reforms to the Probation Service. The MPA has had full access to the TR programme documentation, and the MPA’s assessments, which are focused on assuring delivery of the reforms, are provided in confidence to the programme leadership. In order not to prejudice commercial interests, there are no plans to publish the MPA assessment in the House of Commons Library.</p><p> </p><p>The programme of reforms is on track. We are currently managing the competition which will appoint the owners of the 21 Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRCs). We have a healthy competition across all areas with over 80 bidders and an average of 4 bidders per contract package area. Bids are currently being rigorously assessed, and we are on track to announce the contract winners for each CRC by the end of 2014.</p> more like this
