star this property answer text <p>Many everyday necessities can be adapted and misused as weapons. Deciding which items should be made available therefore involves striking a balance between considerations of safety and decency.</p><p>Establishments select their local canteen list from items in the National Product List. They make their selection on the basis of a dynamic local risk assessment, taking into account a range of factors, notably security, safety, and prisoner needs.</p><p>The Government is committed to making prisons a safe place to work and recognises the risks associated with prisoners’ access to everyday items, including wet-shave razors. In our 2021 Prisons Strategy White Paper, we committed ourselves to trialling alternatives to wet-shave razors in prisons, to determine whether a change in approach might lead to a safer environment for both prisoners and staff. Throughout 2022 and 2023, six pilots have been carried out in the male estate and one in the female estate. Testing at all sites has now concluded and the results are being evaluated. The evaluation, which is nearing completion, will enable us to make informed recommendations on future shaving provision in prison establishments.</p>

As an independent regulator, it is for the FCA to make decisions on how it supervises firms and enforces its rules.</p><p> </p><p>More broadly, the government is committed to working with the FCA to deliver a well-functioning and sustainable consumer credit market which meets consumers’ needs. As part of this, the government is reforming the CCA. Working closely with the FCA, it will be considering how reform can enhance consumer understanding of credit products and credit agreements, leading to improved customer outcomes.</p>
