star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed, as set out on the 26 June at the Justice Select Committee and in the 2017 manifesto, to building up to 10,000 modern and decent prison places to replace old, expensive and unsuitable accommodation. This was reaffirmed by the Chancellor in the 2018 Budget, committing the Government to delivering the first two new prisons at Wellingborough and Glen Parva through public capital. Funding routes will be explored, including through private investment, for the delivery of the remaining prison places. The financing models, timetable and costs for these will be dependent on the relevant value for money and affordability tests, planning permissions and commercial negotiations.</p><p> </p><p>We believe in a balanced approach to custodial services provision, which includes a mix of public, voluntary and private sector involvement. This approach has been shown to work, providing excellent services for the public and value for money for taxpayers.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Prisons and Probation Service (HMPPS) is responsible for the delivery of prison and probation services in England and Wales. These services were first brought together with the creation of the National Offender Management Service in 2004, which became HMPPS in 2017.</p><p>In respect of determining how much money is spent and how funding is determined for prisons/probation, it should be noted that annual budget allocations are set as part of the Ministry of Justice’s annual budget allocation process and subject to any in year movements or organisation restructure changes. These allocations are made on the basis of need and according to Departmental priorities. The allocation of funds for the services provided by HMPPS is carefully planned and prioritised on a regular basis in order to ensure HMPPS is able to continue to deliver its services for all offenders sentenced by the courts for either supervision in the community or custody.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes very seriously its responsibility to keep prisoners safe, and we are committed to reducing the number of self-inflicted deaths and self-harm incidents across the estate. We know that prisoners are at increased risk during the early days in custody and in the period following a transfer between prisons. This is why, as part of our prison safety programme, we are continuing our efforts to support prisoners by:<br>• improving staff knowledge and understanding of the factors known to increase risk of self-harm, to help them to identify and respond appropriately to prisoners at risk. Our revised introduction to suicide and self-harm prevention training has already reached over 17,000 staff;<br>• improving the flow, quality and use of risk information about people coming into our prisons, to support effective decision-making about risk;<br>• renewing our partnership with Samaritans by confirming a further three years’ funding for their valuable Listeners Scheme, and working with them to share learning from the ‘Coping with Life in Prisons’ project, a successful pilot initiative in which Samaritans-trained ex-prisoners delivered emotional resilience training to groups of newly-arrived prisoners;<br>• producing an early days toolkit to help staff enhance their support for prisoners during their first few days and weeks in custody; and<br>• improving the multi-disciplinary ACCT case management process for those identified as at risk of self-harm or suicide.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Any sexual assault that takes place in prison is deplorable, and all reported incidents are referred to the police for investigation. In 2017 less than 1.3% of all reported assaults on prisoners were sexual assaults. We are committed to reducing violence in prison and we encourage prisoners to report assaults, so that we can take action against perpetrators and support victims. The most important support that we can provide is to ensure that all allegations are taken seriously and investigated thoroughly, and that appropriate action is taken if they are proven.</p><p> </p><p>The nature of any further support provided will depend on the circumstances of the case and the prisoner’s preferences, as well as an assessment of the risk of repeat victimisation. At its most straightforward this involves ensuring that further contact between person reporting the assault and the alleged perpetrator is prevented. Where this involves moving one or more prisoners between wings or prisons, it must not be to the reporter’s detriment. Ongoing support may include increased supervision of the reporter by prison staff, who may also work with them to build their sense of security and to restore their confidence. We expect our new key workers to play a growing role in work such as this. Finally, it may also include referral to other sources of help, such as peer supporters, healthcare staff, or more specialist support services from outside the prison.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The number of offenders sentenced to immediate custody for (a) up to and including 3 months and (b) over 3 months and up to and including 6 months for each Home Office offence code in 2017 can be viewed in the table.</p><p> </p><p>Sentencing is a matter for our independent courts, who take into account all circumstances of the case, including any aggravating and mitigating factors.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst there is persuasive evidence that short custodial sentences do not help some offenders turn their backs on crime, protecting the public will always be our top priority. Under this government, the most serious offenders are more likely to go to prison, and for longer, helping protect the public and keep communities safe.</p><p> </p><p>Our message is simple – if you commit a serious offence, you should expect to go to prison. We will not reduce the prison population just to save money.</p> more like this
