Mr. Byers: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will establish an independent and public inquiry into the abuse of inmates at the Medomsley Detention Centre in County Durham between 1970 and 1990. 
Mr. Sutcliffe [holding answer 9 May 2006]: The Government are aware of outstanding civil claims relating to abuse of prisoners at the Medomsley detention centre which closed in 1983. While these civil actions are ongoing it would be inappropriate to comment on any calls for a public inquiry.
Andrew Rosindell: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the effect of the introduction of the National Offender Management Service on jobs in (a) Romford and (b) Havering. 
From 1 April 2006, London Probation will be working to the Offender Management Model. This working structure is being launched in line with the National Offender Management Service (NOMS) and will apply to Probation nationally.
End-to-end Offender Management focuses on one continuous supervision approach for each offender, whether in a custodial or community setting. The emphasis is on the quality of the relationship between staff and the individual offender, and the importance of experiencing delivery of the sentence as a coherent whole.
Following a consultation process and a series of test Borough walkthroughs, the London Arrangements were approved by the London Probation Offender Management Project Board. The arrangements take account of the commitment given to the Prime Ministers Delivery Unit regarding the achievement of timely delivery of reports to Courts.
From November 2005 to March 2006, the end-to-end Offender Management implementation sees a phased approach, with a detailed plan, overseen by the Project Board. Within each borough, a Borough Implementation Team was created to address and manage the implementation in their borough. This covers the areas of Human Resources, IT, Health and Safety, and Premises. A Project Manager, responsible for overseeing their group of boroughs, and overall, coordinates, manages and feeds back the progresses of the Boroughs to the central Project Manager.
