answer text <p>The information requested is provided in the attached table. As per the answer to PQ 184996, please note that offenders may appear both within the caseload figures of court orders (including community orders and suspended sentence orders), and post-release supervision.</p><p> </p><p>The National Probation Service and Community Rehabilitation Companies work closely with other agencies to support offenders in the community. When an offender being supervised by Probation dies, the Probation provider must examine the circumstances of the death and identify areas to improve practice. While we work extremely closely with each offender before and after release to help them find the support they need, we do not have sole responsibility for caring for these offenders. We are clear, however, that they should receive the same level of care as other members of the public.</p> more like this

Consequently, we do not yet have the level of detail split by prison.</p><p>We have committed to spending £30m on improvements to the safety and decency of our prison estate, enhancing security and tackling drugs through roll out of body scanners, and accelerating our digital capability which includes development of mobile phone blocking technology. This is on top of the £40m announced over the summer, meaning a total of £70m is already being directed to tackling drugs and violence, and improving the basic conditions of our prisons. including targeted investment in our 10 priority prisons, which includes six prisons in Yorkshire.</p> more like this
