Mrs. Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice which young offender institutions have been found by inspectors to be using health care beds for behaviour management purposes in the last five years; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Hanson: To provide information for the last five years would be at disproportionate cost. However, in reports published since January 2007, Her Majesties Inspectorate of Prisons has identified five young offenders institutions which have been using health care beds for behaviour management purposesHMP and YOI Brinsford, HMYOI Hindley, HMYOI Lancaster Farms, HMP and YOI Lewes and HMP and YOI Parc.
Action plans produced in response to the recommendations made in the Brinsford and Hindley reports have confirmed that young people at these prisons are no longer placed in the health care unit for behaviour management reasons. A health care needs analysis is being undertaken at Lancaster Farms and will consider this issue. Action plans have yet to be produced in respect of the Lewes and Parc reports.
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many injuries were sustained by offenders held in (a) secure training centres, (b) secure childrens
homes and (c) young offender institutions in each year since 2000, broken down by establishment; and if he will make a statement. 
Mr. Hanson: The Youth Justice Board has been collecting data against common definitions from April 2007. Comparable data across the children and young peoples custodial estate is not available for earlier periods.
