HC Deb 25 October 1993 vol 230 c458W
Mr. Redmond

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list for each of Her Majesty's prison establishments the key objectives reported by the Prison Service for the year 1993–94; and what they were for the year 1992–93.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

Responsibility for this matter has been delegated to the director general of the prison service, who has been asked to arrange for a reply to be given.

Letter to Mr. Martin Redmond from Derek Lewis, dated 25 October 1993:

KEY TARGETS FOR THE PRISON SERVICE The Home Secretary has asked me to reply to your recent Question about key objectives for prison establishments in 1993–94, and 1992–93. The Prison Service's key targets for 1993–94 are set out in its Business Plan, a copy of which is in the House of Commons Library. The Service's objectives, targets and performance indicators for 1992–93 were set out in its Statement of Objectives and Resources, which is also in the Library. Local targets and objectives are agreed by prison governors and Area Managers in the annual establishment "contracts". These are internal management documents which it is not our practice to publish; and to extract from each the individual objectives and targets could only be done at disproportionate cost.
