answer text <p>Almost all asylum claims are processed in the community. Individuals who have their claim processed in detention have usually claimed asylum after being detained for removal, are detained for public protection reasons or have previously failed to comply with the UK’s immigration rules. In response to recommendation 10 in Stephen Shaw’s second report, we are considering whether more of those who claim asylum in detention could have their claims processed in the community.</p><p>In addition, the Home Secretary has undertaken to establish a pilot to manage vulnerable women in the community who would otherwise be detained in Yarl’s Wood and we anticipate that the pilot will have a role in addressing recommendation 10 for women who have claimed asylum in detention.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>In 2016/17, there were 206 incidents where Spice was found in South Yorkshire prisons, and in 2017/18, there were 154 incidents. Data for finds of psychoactive substances in the months since March 2018 will be available on GOV.UK in July 2019, as part of the Annual HMPPS Digest. The number of drug finds reflects not only the number of attempts to convey illicit substances into our prisons but also our success in finding these drugs.</p><p> </p><p>Psychoactive substances are a game changer for prison safety, and this statistic reinforces the scale of the challenge. We are addressing this head on, and have invested £7 million in modern technology, including phone blocking technology and improved searching techniques. We have made it a criminal offence to possess psychoactive substances in prison and trained more than 300 sniffer dogs specifically to detect these drugs.</p><p> </p><p>We are also adopting pioneering approaches such as our ‘Drug Recovery Prison’ pilot at HMP Holme House, which is leading the way in tackling the supply of drugs and putting offenders on a long-term path to recovery.</p>

answer text <p>I am grateful for the time that the Committee has spent looking at prison healthcare. We are considering carefully the Committee’s recommendations and will respond in due course. Tackling drugs is vital to ensure safe and productive prison environments and this includes preventing prisoners developing substance misuse issues.</p><p>To do this, we have formed a Drugs Taskforce, working with law enforcement and health partners across government. The Taskforce is developing a national drugs strategy, underpinned by advice and guidance that will support the whole of the estate to restrict supply, reduce demand and build recovery. Restricting access to illicit drugs in prison is crucial to preventing substance misuse. We are working with the police to catch and convict criminals who smuggle contraband into prisons, and exploring additional security measures and new technology to stop these incursions. Reducing demand for drugs in prison also requires us to get the incentives right. We have developed the concept of ‘Incentivised Substance Free Living’, where prisoners who can demonstrate – through regular compact-based and random mandatory testing – that they are not misusing drugs can experience better living conditions. This will support prisoners to make good decisions and prevent them developing issues with substance misuse. We are also testing innovative approaches through our £9 million joint Ministry of Justice and Department of Health and Social Care Drug Recovery Prison pilot at HMP Holme House.</p><p> </p>

This government recognises the importance of this area and is increasing the information available to students to ensure that they can make informed choices about what and where to study.</p><p>As set out in the department’s strategic guidance to the Office for Students (OfS), we expect them to play a key role in delivering our objectives to improve and support informed choice through the provision of effective information, advice and guidance to all students. In February, we asked the OfS to work with the HE sector to improve transparency so that students know what they should expect and can effectively challenge providers who do not deliver on their commitments.</p><p>In addition, we asked the OfS to consider how to increase the transparency and visibility of what students can expect to receive for their investment at different HE providers, by making Longitudinal Education Outcomes data more widely available such as through publication on Unistats, thereby enabling students to make the right choices for them.</p><p>Although we provide guidance for the OfS, we cannot instruct it to undertake any specific course of action as it is an independent arm’s length body.</p><p>The government will respond directly to the Education Select Committee on its HE value for money report recommendations in due course.</p><p> </p>
