star this property answer text <p /> <p><strong>I am sorry that the response to this question was delayed by a failure in the data collection system.</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) takes the issue of all contraband in prisons extremely seriously and deploys a comprehensive range of robust searching and security measures to detect items of contraband both at the point of entry to the prison and concealed within the prison. These include targeted searching, random and targeted mandatory drug tests, the use of x-ray machines and CCTV surveillance cameras, Body Orifice Security Scanners to detect contraband secreted internally, and the imposition of closed (non-contact) visits. Prisoners found with prohibited items face swift and robust punishment. This can include having days added to their custody, being transferred to a different prison and losing privileges.</p><p> </p><p>The table below gives the number of seizures of heroin and needles (including improvised needles) seized in prisons in England and Wales in 2013. The third column shows the number of prisoners that tested positive for opiates, including heroin in each of those prisons. To disaggregate the data to show those samples positive for heroin from those positive for other opiates would require a detailed investigation of every prison’s locally held records, which would entail significant disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><table><thead><tr><td colspan="4"><p><strong>Finds of heroin, needles and Opiates by establishment<sup>1</sup> 01.01. 2013 to

star this property answer text <p>Magistrates’ courts hear criminal, civil and enforcement cases. Family matters are dealt with under the jurisdiction of the Single Family Court, although they may be heard in a magistrates’ courts building. Criminal, civil and enforcement matters are recorded on the Libra case management system and total hearings for those are provided in the attached table. Family hearings are recorded on a separate system and to extract and validate which family hearings took place in magistrates’ courts would incur disproportionate costs.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>HM Courts &amp; Tribunals Service (HMCTS) is committed to the continuous improvement of performance in Magistrates’ Courts; this includes minimising delays in hearing cases. The performance of Magistrates’ Courts depends upon the performance of the criminal justice system as a whole, and HMCTS works closely with other agencies in the criminal justice system, including the police and the CPS, in order to keep delays to a minimum.</p><p> </p><p>My officials have had regular discussions with magistrates. The Chief Executive and HMCTS Directors meet on a quarterly basis with the Chairs of the Magistrates’ Association (MA) and the National Bench Chairmen’s Forum (NBCF) to discuss various issues, which include performance in the Magistrates’ Courts. The performance of the Magistrates’ Courts has also recently been discussed at meetings of the Senior Presiding Judge’s Magistrates’ Liaison Group (MLG) the membership of which includes both the judiciary and senior officials from HMCTS. At a regional level, Judicial Business Groups (JBG) and, more locally, Judicial Leadership Groups ( (JLG) provide a f<ins></ins>urther forum where the judiciary and my officials can discuss the performance of local Magistrates’ Courts and, where necessary, the judiciary can put in place local listing arrangements to tackle delay.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Public protection is our top priority and is at the heart of our Transforming Rehabilitation reforms. We are clear that management of the offenders who pose the highest risk of serious harm should remain with the public sector. The new National Probation Service is responsible for the direct management of those offenders who pose the highest risk of serious harm to the public and who have committed the most serious offences. This includes sex offenders and Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) cases. Offenders who are deemed to pose a medium and low risk are being managed by a Community Rehabilitation Company.</p><p> </p><p>Every offender will be risk assessed prior to allocation to any probation provider and also upon leaving prison; this will be reviewed when there are indicators that their risk of serious harm to the public has increased to high.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Ministry of Justice publishes proven re-offending rates for adult and juvenile offenders on a quarterly basis. However, these rates cannot be provided for those offenders classified as very high risk or high risk as the information held centrally does not currently hold an assessment of risk. Assessments of risk are held locally by the National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies.</p>
