answer text <p>The Government publishes its Safety in Custody National Statistics bulletin on a quarterly basis, which covers deaths, self-harm and assaults in prison custody in England and Wales.</p><p> </p><p>The latest publication is available at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/safety-in-custody-quarterly-update-to-december-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/safety-in-custody-quarterly-update-to-december-2018</a>. Information about incidents of self-harm up to December 2018 can be found by selecting table <strong>2.13</strong> in the ‘Self-harm in prison custody 2000 to 2018’ link. The table is set out by prison and year, and monthly breakdowns can be found by using the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ functions at the top of the table.</p><p> </p><p>We are taking steps to reduce self-harm and self-inflicted death levels by rolling out improved suicide and self-harm training for new and existing staff. Over 25,000 staff have received some training and over 14,000 have received training in all six modules.</p><p> </p><p>Violence in prisons remains unacceptably high but there are early signs that we are making progress. Eight of the jails involved in the ‘10 Prisons Project’ saw falls in the final quarter of 2018 – four of them by more than 25% - while the number of assaults across the estate reduced by 11%.</p><p> </p><p>Across the prison estate we have invested an additional £70m in a raft of measures designed to improve safety, security and decency – including body-scanners, enhanced searches and new investigative teams – while the 4,700 additional staff we have recruited since October 2016 are making a real difference.</p>
