Prisoners: Protest

Mr. Bellingham: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what estimate he has made of the incidence of dirty protests at each prison establishment in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement. [182146]

Maria Eagle: A dirty protest is not included in the list of incidents that must be reported to the national

operations unit at Prison Service headquarters. Information on the number of dirty protests is not held centrally and could be obtained by contacting each prison only at a disproportionate cost.

Prisons

Mr. Garnier: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what regulations there are on prison (a) construction, (b) location and (c) specifications. [178772]

Mr. Hanson: The construction of prison buildings is subject to the same regulations as other building construction which include Building Regulations where appropriate, Health and Safety and Fire Regulations and various regulations relating to the provision of utility services. Government policies relating to energy and sustainable development apply including the requirement to achieve the highest BRE assessment method rating of excellent for energy efficiency for each building. Design, Security and Technical specifications and standards produced by NOMS also apply. A proposal to locate and build a new prison on a particular site would be subject to planning procedures. These procedures also apply to the provision of a new building in an existing prison.

Mr. Garnier: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what specifications are applicable to (a) design, (b) lighting, (c) furniture, (d) amenities, (e) privacy, (f) ventilation and (g) space requirements of (i) existing and (ii) new prison places. [178775]

Mr. Hanson: NOMS produces a wide range of design, security and technical specifications and standards which cover every aspect of building design, including lighting, furniture, amenities, privacy, ventilation and space requirements. These specifications and standards take account of regulations relating to building construction and also prison security requirements.

Mr. Garnier: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what estimate he has made of the value of the land occupied by each prison in HM Prison Service. [178776]

Mr. Hanson: Land values are updated annually. The values are not necessarily the same as what might be obtained if a site was sold on the open market. The sale value will depend on how the site can be marketed—a planning consent for residential development will enhance value for example—and the market forces at the time of the sale. The current land values for prisons within the HM Prison Service are in the following table.
