star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>We take mental health issues very seriously and are committed to working closely with health partners to ensure that offenders are able to access the treatment and support required for their mental health needs. Providing the right interventions at the right time is vital to improving outcomes. Liaison &amp; Diversion services place clinical staff at police stations and courts, to provide assessments and referrals to treatment and support. They also provide critical information to decision-makers in the justice system, so that decisions and sentences can be tailored to meet their needs. Liaison and Diversion services continue to be rolled out across England, and were at 82% at the end of March 2018. Full roll out is expected by 2020-21. For those in custody, NHS England are responsible for commissioning and delivering health services in prisons in England. In Wales, healthcare is devolved to the Welsh Government. However, we recognise the importance of the prison environment on enabling better health outcomes. To June 2018, we have recruited an additional 3,653 frontline prison officers who will help improve prison regimes and access to healthcare. This will also enable us to implement the key worker role, giving staff dedicated time to provide one-to-one support to individual prisoners and, for example, identify where mental health support may be needed. We are also working to improve prison staff training around mental health, including providing revised suicide and self-harm prevention training. Over 17,000 prison staff have completed at least one module of the revised suicide and self-harm prevention training. We are currently reviewing the mental health element of the Prison Officer Entry Level Training (POELT) to ensure it provides staff with the knowledge and confidence to recognise and respond appropriately to new or unreported mental health problems, or to recognise when existing problems are deteriorating. We have awarded grant of £500k a year, for the next three years, to the Samaritans to enable the continuation of their excellent Listeners Scheme.</p></td></tr></tbody></table>

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>We have formed a Drugs Taskforce working with law enforcement and health partners across government to reduce substance misuse including psychoactive substances (PS) in prisons. The Taskforce is developing a Prison Drugs Strategy for publication this autumn which supports and complements the National Drugs Strategy published by the Home Office in 2017. Our approach is centred around the same three objectives: restricting supply, reducing demand and building recovery. We are supporting prisons in reducing all types of drug use, with a particular focus on PS and the unique challenges they bring. In September 2016, we became the first prison service in the world to introduce innovative mandatory drug tests for psychoactive substances, a significant step in tackling the supply and use of them. We have made it a criminal offence to possess psychoactive substances in prison and trained more than 300 sniffer dogs specifically to detect these drugs. We will shortly be providing guidance on how to counter the evolving methods used by suppliers such as impregnated paper. The creation of a new specialist Financial Crime Unit to identify and disrupt the organised crime gangs fuelling drug dealing in prisons was announced by the Secretary of State for Justice at the Conservative Party Conference. The unit is staffed by members of the Police and Prison Service and is able to freeze bank accounts linked to organised crime and to make arrests. This action will cut the supply of drugs to prisoners and prevent money reaching criminal kingpins. We are supporting Bim Afolami MP’s Private Member’s Bill on substance testing in prisons. This legislation will simplify and strengthen the drug testing framework, allowing us to test for all psychoactive substances, as well as prescription-only and pharmacy medicines, helping to identify where they are being abused.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>Under the proposed new reconsideration mechanism, announced on 4 February 2019, the criteria will be the same as judicial review – that is, whether the Parole Board’s decision was legally or procedurally flawed in some way. It will fall to a Parole Board judicial member, unconnected to the original decision, to determine that if decision should be reconsidered, having regard to the evidence presented. To determine whether to make an application to the Parole Board following representations from a victim, a dedicated team in my department will examine the case, including all the evidence and the procedures that were followed, in order to identify whether there may be an arguable case to make an application. They will look for any indications of whether the Board may have gone beyond or outside its powers, if the Rules were adhered to, whether the correct procedures were followed and where the panel’s decision could appear irrational in light of all the evidence before it. A Parole Board judge will then make the decision on reconsideration and whether the criteria have been met. But my officials are well placed to support victims by helping to determine whether there is an arguable case for an application to be made and, if there is, how best to present that argument to the Board.</p></td></tr></tbody></table>

When a challenge is made to the merits of a decision, and the Parole Board does not think a new referral is needed, the Board will take a neutral stance in the judicial review. If the challenge is given permission to proceed, the High Court will then review the decision on its own merits. The Secretary of State announced on 4 February 2019 that, following a public consultation, the Government intends to create a reconsideration mechanism to allow for Parole Board decisions in certain circumstances to be looked at again if they appear to be fundamentally flawed. A prisoner will be able to apply for their case to be reconsidered if they think the decision was unlawful. The reconsideration mechanism, which will also be accessible by victims via the Secretary of State, will allow for legally flawed decisions – in the rare cases that may occur – to be corrected without the need to pursue a costly and time-consuming judicial review.</p></td></tr></tbody></table>

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>The department has not made an estimate of the reoffending rate of people released to no fixed abode or insecure accommodation in each year since 2014. However, a 2012 study found those who were homeless or in temporary accommodation before prison were more likely to be reconvicted than those in stable accommodation (79% compared to 47%) <br> It is vital that everyone leaving prison has somewhere stable and secure to live. Having somewhere stable to live acts as a platform for ex-offenders to be able to access the services and support needed to turn their back on crime for good yet. Published statistics showing the accommodation status for all offenders released from custody and offenders on community sentences can be viewed here: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/729062/accommodation-cirumstances-tables-2018.xlsx. As part of the Government initiative to reduce and ultimately eliminate rough sleeping across England, we will invest £6 million over two years in a pilot scheme to help ex-offenders into accommodation. <br> Furthermore, as of the 1st of October, Prisons and Probation providers will have a “Duty to Refer” anyone who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless to the Local Authority. Following a referral, Local Authorities are then required to make an assessment, meaning offenders can receive meaningful housing assistance at an earlier stage irrespective of their priority need.</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>

star this property answer text <table><tbody><tr><td><p>The Government is committed to the modernisation of the prison estate. This will be achieved by delivering up to 10,000 modern, safe and decent prison places as previously announced, and the reconfiguration of the existing estate, providing the physical conditions for Governors to achieve better educational, training and rehabilitative outcomes. The delivery of new places will enable the Prison Estate Transformation Programme to achieve a combination of replacing existing capacity and increasing current capacity so that we will be able to close the least fit for purpose prison accommodation while ensuring we continue to meet demand. Population and capacity of the prison estate is kept under careful review to ensure there is always sufficient capacity. Decisions on the size of the future prison estate will reflect the current and projected prison population, including an assessment of the necessary margin to manage population fluctuations. No decisions have been made about future prison closures (male or female) beyond those which have already been announced.</p></td></tr></tbody></table>
