Mr. Coombs

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what use is made of market research by his Department; and if he will make a statement.

Prison Service Industries and Farms is the only organisation within the Home Department concerned with manufacturing and sales. It is about the review aspects of its marketing strategy, including market research, with the aid of commercial consultants.
