Corston Report

Volume 471: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much funding has been allocated to the implementation of the Corston Report’s recommendations that have been accepted; and if he will make a statement. (182639)

The Government’s response to the Corston report published on 6 December 2007 highlights where additional funding has already been identified for new initiatives to take forward the recommendations and sets out a number of ways in which provision and services will be improved and made more appropriate for women. We have accepted 40 out of the 43 recommendations and implementation of many of the commitments will be possible within the resources already identified for providing more effective interventions and services for offenders.
