To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what has been the effect on the "fresh start" initiative on prison regimes.

Mrs. Rumbold

Since the "fresh start" initiative to improve efficiency in the use of prison service manpower was introduced in 1987, there has been a general improvement in the level of regime delivery with an 8 per cent. increase in activity hours per inmate in 1989–90 and a further 7 per cent. increase in 1990–91.
