In addition to this there are prisoner transfers that are managed locally. These are not recorded centrally.

Prisoners: Compensation

David Davis: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many claims for compensation were made by inmates of each (a) prison and (b) young offenders institution in each year between 2000 and 2007; and how much was paid in compensation. [195547]

Mr. Straw: The following table details the number of compensation claims received from prisoners over the last three financial years and the total amount paid in compensation, whether by way of out of court settlement or by a court award. The figures exclude private establishments. Compensation figures prior to 2004-05 were not collated centrally and those for 2007-08 have not been finalised.

The claims received each year may not be the same as those that are settled in the same period, as litigation often takes several years to resolve.
