asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what arrangements exist in Wandsworth prison to consult prisoners about the use made of the compulsory weekly levy for the general purposes fund; and whether he will arrange for regular accounts to be made available to prisoners showing how the fund has been spent.

There are no formal arrangements for consulting prisoners at Wandsworth but prisoners may put forward suggestions on how the money should be spent. Prisoners are generally aware how the money is disbursed but are not provided with the audited accounts.
