§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects to publish a prisoners charter; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
The Prison Service's commitments under the citizens charter were set out in "The Prison Service and Citizen's Charter", published in April 1993. This document was circulated very widely within the Prison Service and a copy has been placed in the Library. There is, however, no plan to publish a prisoners charter.
