Mrs. Curtis-Thomas

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the work of the implementation team for the Reducing Crime-Changing Lives reform programme. [170440]

Implementing the reforms set out in "Reducing Crime-Changing Lives" is a complex and long-term programme. Full implementation will take several years to be fully concluded. We are currently consulting key stakeholders on our preferred model for the organisational structure of the National Offender Management Service.
