Prison Service

Volume 450: debated on Thursday 19 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department for what reason the Prison Service London area uses the Great Westminster Clock as the logo on their letterheads rather than HM Prison Service logo; who authorised such use; and if he will make a statement. (93966)

London area office uses the Great Westminster Clock alongside the Prison Service logo on its paperwork, not instead of it. A number of groups within the Prison Service use their own logos alongside the Prison Service logo. The use of the clock was authorised by the area manager.

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much has been spent by (a) HM Prison Service and (b) his Department on investigations conducted by Mr. Ron Tasker in each of the last three years; and if he will make a statement. (94362)

Mr. Tasker has conducted a wide range of investigations in the last three years for various areas of the Home Office. To establish the exact costs of these investigations would involve disproportionate cost.
