HC Deb 09 February 1995 vol 254 c379W
24. Mr. Page

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to ensure the correct categorisation of prisoners.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

The criterion and procedures to be used in decisions on categorisation are set out in circular instruction 7/1988 and the Prison Service manual on security, copies of which are available in the Library. Security category assessment is a continuous responsibility of Prison Service staff both at establishments for prisoners categorised B, C and D, and at headquarters for category A prisoners.
