In October last year, together with a number of leading football organisations, it launched the Twinning Project, in which 40 English Football League and Premier League clubs are working together with prison establishments to help reduce re-offending. The form this work will take will vary depending on the needs of the establishment and the club, but will range from professional coaching qualifications to refereeing and employability skills. There are also plans to extend this approach to include other sports, such as Rugby League.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Responses to the two parts of the questions are as follows:</p><p>Part (a) - At this point it cannot be determined if the full data set for directly employed staff is available. The reason for this is because in Feb 2017 MOJ rationalised its payrolls and moved to a new payroll system (known as SOP), so any prior year’s data, if available, would need to be sourced from legacy systems. To do this would require raising requests with several legacy suppliers who could then determine if the data was available. The cost of doing this would be disproportionate. Only data for the following financial periods are available. This data covers the MOJ group:</p><p>- February 2017 - March 2017 - £18,418,976</p><p>- April 2017 – March 2018 - £103,919,954</p><p>- April 2018 – March 2019 - £93,402,051</p><p>- April 2019 - June 2019 - £21,944,613</p><p>The average number of employees throughout the above periods was:</p><p>- In 2017 - 71,000</p><p>- In 2018 – 72,000</p><p>- In 2019 – 76,000</p><p>It should also be noted that there are many reasons why someone may get paid overtime, for example, in prisons for carrying out bedwatch or dealing with incidents of unrest. All of these elements have been included in the above figures.</p><p> </p><p>Part (b) – This data is not available because MOJ engage agency staff via third party providers such as Brook Street, and these staff are not on the MOJ payroll and therefore details of any overtime paid are not held by MOJ. MOJ pay for these individuals, who are generally charged out at an hourly rate, via invoice.</p>
