Prison Service: Manpower

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 14 June 2007

To ask the Minister of State, Ministry of Justice how many staff funded by the public purse in HM Prison Service are classified as people without posts. (141721)

HM Prison Service does not hold central records on the number of staff classified as "without posts". It is a geographically widespread organisation and most aspects of personnel management are devolved to a local level.

HMPS redeploys staff on a temporary basis until a permanent position is found for them. There are no known instances where this has not occurred.
