star this property answer text <p>In deciding that the underused magistrates’ courts in Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft should close, the Lord Chancellor was satisfied that effective access to justice would be maintained in Suffolk with an alternative provision arrangement in place in Bury St Edmunds. This continues to be our assessment now that the courts have closed.</p><p> </p><p>The alternative provision allows non-imprisonable magistrates’ cases and family proceedings to continue to be heard in the Bury St Edmunds County Court and Tribunal building (Triton House) and videoconferencing facilities are also available for the use of parties in criminal proceedings.</p><p> </p><p>The workload of Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court not suitable for the alternative provision facility has primarily moved to Ipswich, with some work heard in Norwich. Family hearings can also be accommodated at Cambridge Magistrates’ and Family Court.</p><p> </p><p>The workload of Lowestoft Magistrates’ Court, County Court and Family Court has been relocated to Ipswich, Great Yarmouth and Norwich.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A Prisoner Transfer Agreement is in place to enable Pakistani nationals to voluntarily transfer from the UK during their prison sentence so that they continue to serve their sentence in Pakistan (and vice versa for British nationals imprisoned in Pakistan). Prisoner transfers are, however, currently suspended due to the corrupt release of prisoners transferred to Pakistan in 2010. The Government of Pakistan has since taken action to return the corruptly released prisoners to custody and has prosecuted those involved.</p><p> </p><p>Work is underway with the new Government of Pakistan to resolve the issues presented by the corrupt releases and restart transfers with appropriate safeguards in place. In the meantime, Pakistani nationals continue to be deported from the UK following completion of their prison sentences.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The tables show the numbers of self-harm incidents, assault incidents on prisoners, and assault incidents on staff, per 100 prisoners, for each prison from 2013 to 2017 inclusive.</p><p> </p><p>The Government takes very seriously its responsibility to keep prisoners safe, and we are committed to reducing the incidence of self-harm across the estate. This is why we have established a prison safety programme through which we are taking forward a comprehensive set of actions to improve safety in custody. We have invested in over 3,000 additional staff in order to deliver consistent, purposeful regimes. We have also introduced the new key worker role, under which staff can give prisoners more effective challenge and support.</p><p> </p><p>Our prison staff work incredibly hard and we are under no illusions about the challenges they face. We are taking urgent action to make prisons safer, and assaults on our staff will never be tolerated. That is why we are working with the Police and Crown Prosecution Service to ensure successful prosecutions of those who assault them. It is also why the Government supported the recently passed Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act, which increases sentences for those who attack emergency workers, including prison officers.</p>
