To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice whether her Department is undertaking a review of the electronic tagging operations of Group 4 Securicor. (141442)

Following the allegations against Group4Securicor (G4S) in the BBC Programme “Inside Out” in March 2007, the National Offender Management Service required G4S to investigate the allegations. G4S undertook an internal and external audit of its electronic monitoring operations in all three contract areas. The National Offender Management Service undertook its own investigation. Following consideration of both investigations, a rectification notice was issued on the East Midlands Region of G4S at the end of April, requiring the remedy of the defaults within 60 days.
