Detailed information on the location of arson offences, such as churches, may be held on court record but to be able to identify these cases, as they are not held centrally, we would have to access individual court records which would be of disproportionate cost. Matters relating to Scotland and Northern Ireland are matters for those respective devolved administrations.</p></td></tr></tbody></table> more like this

Governors will also need to be aware of the needs of their population and commission suitable provision that is linked to local employment needs, so that those released from prison can gain employment.</p><p> </p><p>Progress will be measured via improvements in the Ofsted ratings awarded, ensuring that there is an increase in the percentage of prisons receiving “Good” or “Outstanding” ratings for education delivery.</p>
