answer text <p>The information requested could only be obtained at disproportionate cost. Figures on all releases in error are published as part of the HM Prison and Probation Service Annual Digest. The latest publication can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/annual-hm-prison-and-probation-service-digest-2017-to-2018" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/annual-hm-prison-and-probation-service-digest-2017-to-2018</a></p><p> </p><p>Releases in error are rare and in the vast majority of cases offenders are returned to custody very quickly. We work closely with the police to recapture those at large and investigate each incident thoroughly to see what lessons can be learned.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Probate Services provided by Her Majesty’s Courts &amp; Tribunals Service (HMCTS) have been designed and developed incorporating user feedback. The user satisfaction rate measured at the time the customer submits their application (the point at which they finish their interaction with our online process) remains consistent at 92%.</p><p> </p><p>HMCTS welcomes customer views throughout their interaction with its services, including after the application has been made. The agency’s formal complaints and praise procedure is available for this purpose and customers can engage with it at the court, on the phone, or online at GOV.UK. Feedback is used to inform ongoing service improvement. In respect of probate HMCTS received feedback from applicants on their concerns in a number of ways. The agency has recruited more staff to address a peak of workload and is now issuing in excess of 1,000 grants a day, which has led to reductions in waiting times.</p> more like this

answer text <p>We are taking urgent and decisive action to stop contraband, such as drugs and mobile telephones, from entering our prisons. These items pose a significant threat to safety and security.</p><p> </p><p>X-ray body scanners allow prison staff to detect items hidden inside prisoners’ bodies. The following prisons in England and Wales already have such body scanners installed: HMP Altcourse, Belmarsh, Doncaster, Forest Bank, Holme House, Leeds, Northumberland and Peterborough.</p><p> </p><p>As part of the Government’s £70 million investment in safety, security and decency, we have commenced an installation programme in a number of additional prisons, including the 10 Prisons Project and the long-term and high security estate. These are some of our most challenging prisons and are more likely to face attempts by prisoners to hide contraband inside their bodies in light of other security measures already in place.</p><p> </p><p>We will consider whether to introduce additional X-ray body scanners once they have been installed and used in the 10 Prisons Project and long-term and high security estate. In the meantime, we are going out to tender for a new contract that will give the Prison Service the means to purchase further scanners in future.</p>
