Feltham Young Offender Institution and Remand Centre

Volume 464: debated on Monday 15 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice pursuant to the answer of 5 June 2007, Official Report, column 381W, on Feltham Young Offender Institution and Remand Centre, whether serious assaults are recorded separately from other assaults under the PSIMOn—Prison Service Information for Managers Online—system; and if he will make a statement. (157841)

Yes, from April 2003 since when the key performance indicator for prison violence has been based on serious assaults which account for about 9 per cent. of all assault incidents. This replaced a measure based on the number of proven adjudications (the internal disciplinary process) for assaults generally. Pre and post April 2003 assault incident data cannot be readily compared.
