Mr. Bellingham: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department in what circumstances a violent offender would be released from prison without (a) consultation with the police and (b) supervision; and if he will make a statement. 
The police are partners in Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA), which are statutory arrangements, operated by criminal justice and social care agencies to manage serious sexual and violent offenders and protect the public. The police are therefore consulted on the management of violent offenders who pose a high risk of serious harm, generally those serving a sentence of 12 months and over.
All fixed-term prisoners, regardless of their offence, serving 12 months or more, all fixed-term prisoners aged under 22 years at the point of release and all prisoners serving a life or equivalent sentence must undergo statutory supervision upon release. The only exception is the very small number of prisoners released at the end of their custodial term under the provisions of the Criminal Justice Act 1967.
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how the (a) Probation and (b) Prison Service in Wales will be managed to establish

Fiona Mactaggart: The Director of Offender Management Service Wales has responsibility for supporting both the delivery of Offender Management in Wales and implementing 'Joining Together in Wales: an Adult and Young People's Strategy to Reduce Re-offending'. There has already been full involvement of the probation and prison services in developing these area within the Welsh context. The National Offender Management Service in Wales will continue to develop close working links with both services and other key partners to ensure their successful implementation.
