§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will provide a table showing how many hours each week are allocated to purposeful activity in each of HM prisons and young offender centres for (a) remand prisoners and (b) sentenced offenders; and what improvements are planned for the coming year. [HL4444]
§ Lord Falconer of Thoroton
The Prison Service does not collect centrally information to distinguish time spent in purposeful activity by sentenced prisoners and those on remand. The average weekly purposeful activity time for all prisoners in 2001–02 in each establishment in England and Wales is given in the table.
Targets agreed with establishments for 2002–03 aim to increase the overall average purposeful activity 26WA time. Additional investment in regimes is intended to increase the proportion of time spent in activities which contribute to reducing crime, such as education, drug and offending behaviour work and resettlement activity.
