HC Deb 29 February 2000 vol 345 c254W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if a questionnaire is issued to all prison inmates before they are discharged from prisons in England and Wales. [111939]

Mr. Boateng

The issuing of questionnaires to prisoners before discharge is not a standard procedure within the discharge process.

Individual prison establishments may use questionnaires as a means of gathering feedback and information locally, and questionnaires may be used from time to time as a means of gathering information relating to specific initiatives on a national basis.
