answer text <p>The death of a prisoner or of any other person must be reported immediately to HMPPS HQ by telephone. That report must then be followed up with a written report within 24 hours (or, at weekends, by the following Monday). In the case of a deceased prisoner, the prison must also report the death to the Prisons &amp; Probation Ombudsman in writing, within 24 hours. Reports to HMPPS are sent daily to Ministers’ offices and to the relevant officials in my Department, including the team who oversee the progress of the Ombudsman’s investigations.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We do not hold specific training costs for PAVA training. PAVA training is incorporated into Use of Force training, which is mandatory of all prison officers and as such it is not possible to isolate specific training costs.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to the rollout of PAVA to support our hardworking prison officers to do their jobs. PAVA is just one part of our approach to improve prison safety. PAVA spray is explicitly for the protection of staff, the protection of those in our care or to facilitate the safe withdrawal of staff. It will be used in exceptional circumstances where a member of staff is faced with serious violence, or the perceived threat of serious violence.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Making prison Governors responsible and accountable for the education provision delivered in their individual prisons is a key focus of the strategy.

answer text <p>Following the attacks in New Zealand, we recognised the increased security anxieties being felt by mosques as we approach Ramadan. A security training scheme commenced on the 5 May. We originally committed to 12 workshops but following significant interest we have agreed to fund an additional 10 workshops during Ramadan.</p><p>These workshops have been open to faith leaders and have not been restricted to those who have experienced a previous hate crime. We have also made available funds to pay for the distribution of written advice to mosques, community centres and madrassahs. This is a short-term project for which we have awarded grant funding of £74,725 that will sit alongside the wider £5m fund that has been announced for security training for all faiths.</p> more like this
