unstar this property answer text <p>The Prisoner Escort Custody Service (PECS), which is part of the National Offender Management Service, is responsible for the movement of prisoners between prisons, police stations and courts and their care and security while in court custody. PECS manages the secure escort contracts covering all those sent to custody in the prison estate, apart from Category A prisoners.</p><p> </p><p>However, there are occasions when the prison service may make use of taxis to provide prisons with a cost-effective, flexible way of fulfilling transport requirements for prisoners where there is a strong operational justification for doing so. This is an economical mode of transport (particularly in comparison with using cellular vehicles or purchasing cars). It reduces potential overhead costs for prisons, such as maintenance and cleaning, which have an impact on staff time. Prisons are able to access this form of transport at short notice, in response to urgent requirements</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The table below shows the total amount of cost of hiring transport, including taxis, for prisoners for financial year 2013-14 for public sector prisons in England and Wales.</p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Financial Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Transport Hire Costs for Prisoners </strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£3,417,595</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p> </p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p><em>To note within the table:</em></p><p>1. It is important to note that the charges for Taxis used for medical escorts are reimbursed by Primary Care Trusts (PCTs). PCTs have the commissioning and funding responsibility for all medical escorts and bedwatches for prisons but exclude Open prisons, Immigration Remand Centres and prisons in Wales.</p><p> </p><p>2. The figure for financial year 2013-14 is extracted from our central accounting code and include costs of hiring transport e.g. taxis, coaches, mini-buses etc. for taking prisoners to court and for all other escorts including bedwatches, funeral escorts and regime activities not in official vehicles. Also, the figure has been drawn from NOMS central accounting records, which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.</p><p> </p><p>3.

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department is committed to disposing of surplus property assets expeditiously and reducing holding costs.</p><p> </p><p>The date of operational closure of each court building which has been closed but not disposed of since May 2010 is detailed below. The majority of these courts were closed as part of the Court Estate Reform Programme (CERP). CERP is expected to save the taxpayer £152m by 2015 while ensuring the courts continue to operate effectively. As of 29 October 2014 a total of 66 buildings closed under the programme have been sold attracting disposal receipts of £42.9m.</p><p> </p><p>In addition to the courts announced for closure under CERP, the Ministry of Justice has closed and disposed of a number of court buildings as a result of the integration and co-location.</p><p> </p><p>The sale of former court buildings is dependent on a number of factors including the state of the market, potential future use of the property (including its development potential) and their location. Furthermore, some of the buildings are occupied in part by the police and local authorities, which can also delay or prevent swift disposal.</p><p> </p><p>When disposing of surplus property assets we will always seek best value for the taxpayer.</p><p> </p><p><strong>Table: Date of operational closure of each court building which has been closed but not disposed of since May 2010 as at 30 June 2014</strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><table><thead><tr><td><p><strong>Court Building</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Date of operational closure <sup>1, 2</sup></strong></p></td></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td><p>Bishop Auckland Magistrates’ &amp; County Court <sup>4</sup></p></td><td><p>13 July 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bridgwater Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>30 March 2012</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Bridport Magistrates' Court <sup>3</sup></p></td><td><p>18 March 2010</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Burton-upon-Trent County Court</p></td><td><p>22 March 2013</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Cirencester Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Coleford Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Dorking Magistrates' Court <sup>3</sup></p></td><td><p>18 March 2010</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Epping Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>30 March 2012</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Flint Magistrates' Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Frome Magistrates' Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Goole Magistrates' Court</p></td><td><p>16 December 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Haywards Heath (Mid Sussex) Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>30 March 2012</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Honiton Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Houghton Le Spring Magistrates' Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Keighley (Bingley) Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>16 December 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Lewes Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Lyndhurst Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Market Drayton Magistrates' Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Oswestry Magistrates' Court &amp; County Court</p></td><td><p>07 October 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Pontefract Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>22 March 2013</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Rochdale Magistrates’ Court<sup>5</sup></p></td><td><p>22 December 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Selby Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>22 March 2013</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Sherborne Magistrates' Court <sup>3</sup></p></td><td><p>18 March 2010</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Stoke-on-Trent Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>07 December 2012</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Totnes Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Towcester Magistrates' Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Weston Super Mare Magistrates’ Court <sup>6</sup></p></td><td><p>Not used since September 2006</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Wimborne Magistrates' Court</p></td><td><p>01 April 2011</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Witham Magistrates’ Court</p></td><td><p>30 March 2012</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong>Footnotes:</strong></p><p>1.
