Chelmsford Prison

Volume 471: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

22. To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what assessment he has made of the conclusions of HM Inspector of Prisons' report on Chelmsford prison on suicides; and if he will make a statement. (182487)

I would like to thank the Chief Inspector of Prisons for her report about Chelmsford prison.

The Prison Service will produce an action plan in around two months which will respond in detail to each of the Chief Inspector’s recommendations, setting out the action required and the timescale.

As the Chief Inspector herself has pointed out, the proportion of her recommendations which are accepted is over 95 per cent.
