How many of the young offenders involved in the incident at H M Stoke Heath Young Offenders Institution on 2 October were under 18; whether any of the 12 young prisoners reported to be transferred to other institutions were under 18; and, if so, to which institutions they were transferred.[HL7516]
The Minister of State, Home Office (Baroness Scotland of Asthal): All of the offenders involved in the disturbance on A wing were juveniles, and all those transferred were under 18. During the early morning of 2 October, 12 juveniles were transferred outsix to Brinsford and six to Hindley. Later in the same day a further 53 trainees were transferred to Lancaster Farms (12), Werrington (12), Castington (11), Ashfield (6) Warren Hill (6), Parc (4) and Wetherby (2).
Baroness Scotland of Asthal: Early indications from the investigation into the disturbance suggest that the increase in population has resulted in the wider dispersal of juveniles from their home area which may have contributed to an increased level of instability. The final report has now been received and will inform a wider review of factors impacting on stability in the juvenile population. Any measures which can be taken to improve stability will be closely examined.
