To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many claims for compensation were made by prisoners at each of Her Majesty’s Prisons and Young Offender Institutions in each year between 1997 and 2007; on what basis each claim was made; how many of these claims were settled out of court; how many were otherwise successful; what the total sum was of compensation paid; and what action was taken by the prison authorities in each case to prevent similar claims in the future.
