Asked by Lord Hunt of Chesterton

Baroness Northover: The UK Department for International Development (DfID) aims to ensure that information about its programmes is communicated effectively via the media to the UK public.



13 Dec 2011 : Column WA259

Opportunities to communicate about the UK Government's support for water programmes are identified and planned in advance. For example, World Water Day in March is marked each year with proactive communications on this issue. Different channels, including print, broadcast, digital and social media, are used to reach and inform a range of audiences.

In line with the UK Aid Transparency Guarantee, full information about all water projects and programmes is published on the DfID website (www.dfid.gov.uk).

Under the UK Aid Transparency Guarantee, we encourage all international aid providers to be transparent about their aid projects and expenditure, including United Nations agencies.

Young Offenders

Questions

Asked by Lord Dubs

The Minister of State, Ministry of Justice (Lord McNally): All young offenders serving sentences of detention in a young offenders' institution (YOI) are held in appropriately designated YOI accommodation within the prison estate. The majority of this accommodation is in dedicated YOIs, although some establishments in the estate have a dual designation (designated both as a prison and a YOI) and hold both adult prisoners and young offenders.

The table below shows the number of remand or convicted unsentenced and convicted and sentenced male and female prisoners aged 18-20 years old with a recorded residential address or proxy in the London Borough of Wandsworth who were held in predominant function male young offender institutions, predominant function male local prisons and other prisons (including female prisons) on a set day in each month where data is available since May 2009.

These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems, which, as with any large-scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.

Information on a prisoner's residence is provided by prisoners on reception into prison and recorded on a central IT system. Addresses can include a prisoner's home address, an address to which they intend to return on discharge or next of kin address and these figures are provided in the table above.

If no address is given, a prisoner's committal court address is used as a proxy for the area in which a prisoner is resident. These figures are also included in the table above. No address has been recorded and no court information is available for around 3 per cent of all prisoners. These figures are therefore excluded from the table.

Asked by Lord Dubs

Lord McNally: The table in the attached Excel file shows the number of young people (aged 10 to 17) either sentenced or remanded in custody attached to the Wandsworth Youth Offending Team.

These data are from the Youth Justice Board (YJB) and refer to secure training centres (STCs), secure children's homes (SCHs), and young offender institutions (YOIs).

The figures from April 2010 onwards are provisional.

The figures for April 2010 to March 2011 will be finalised in the 2010-11 Annual Youth Justice Statistics publication on 26 January 2012.

Data from April 2011 onwards will be finalised when the 2011-12 Annual Youth Justice Statistics are published in 2013.

The data come from the Youth Justice Board's Secure Accommodation Clearing House System (SACHS). These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems, which, as with any large- scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing and may be subject to change over time.
