Prison Behaviour Programmes

Mr. George Howarth: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he will list the average number of prisoners (a) taking part in and (b) completing offending behaviour programmes in each month of the financial year 1995-96 and each available month so far during 1996-97 (i) in each prison, (ii) by prison type and (iii) in the whole Prison Service; [9677]

Miss Widdecombe: Responsibility for these matters has been delegated to the Director General of the Prison Service, who has been asked to arrange for a reply to be given.

Letter from A.J. Pearson to Mr. George Howarth, dated 16 January 1997:



    You asked for this information for each prison, by prison type and for the whole of the Prison Service. I am afraid this information is not available in the form requested and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.


    However for the year ending 31 March 1996, 406 prisoners completed the core module 3 of the sex offender treatment programme (SOTP). A further 33 completed the SOTP booster programme (designed for men about to be released from very long sentences).


    746 prisoners completed cognitive skills programmes, 115 of these completed the reasoning and rehabilitation programme and 631 the in-house thinking skills.


    In order to meet the criteria set for programmes to be accredited the standards of existing programmes have had to be improved. The Sex Offender Core Programme was revised during 1995 from 70 to 180 hours and the length of the Thinking Skills programme was increased from 28 hours to 40 hours from April 1996.


    I attach two tables containing information received from establishments which indicate the number of prisoners completing each of the accredited programmes so far this financial year, the programme length and the type of establishments running these programmes. There are a number of courses in progress which are not included in these figures.


    There are other offending behaviour programmes run in prisons according to prisoners need and the skills of staff available to deliver them. These are not recorded centrally and could only be provided at disproportionate cost.

Sex Offences

Mr. Waterson: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to review the current maximum penalties for sex offences. [11766]

Mr. Howard: I have decided, in consultation with my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Scotland, to undertake a review of the existing maximum penalties for sex offenders. The object of the review will be to identify any anomalies in existing penalties, and to ensure that penalties properly reflect the comparative gravity of different offences.

Prison Medical Service

Dr. Goodson-Wickes: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the merits of privatising the prison medical service. [10450]

Miss Widdecombe: We have no plans to privatise the prison health care service. We are committed to pursuing a policy where health care for prisoners will be purchased from the national health service or the private sector, rather than be provided directly, where this makes sense in terms of a better level of service and better value for money.

Asylum and Immigration Appeals Act

Mrs. Roche: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the estimated (a) set up and (b) monthly and annual running costs of the helpline to be introduced for employers regarding the Asylum and Immigration Appeals Act 1993. [10667]

16 Jan 1997 : Column: 352

Mr. Kirkhope: The cost of setting up the helpline for employers about section 8 of the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 was approximately £23,000. The annual running costs would be approximately £3,500.

Prisoners (Purposeful Activity)

Mr. George Howarth: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the average amount of time prisoners spent in purposeful activity in each month of the financial year 1995-96 and each available month so far during 1996-97 (a) in each prison, (b) by prison type and (c) in the whole Prison Service. [9674]

Miss Widdecombe: Responsibility for this matter has been delegated to the Director General of the Prison Service, who has been asked to arrange for a reply to be given.
