Prison Service

Volume 471: debated on Friday 1 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what consultations he has had with the Secretary of State for Justice on the implementation of the new structures for prison and probation services in Wales. (184077)

My predecessor had regular discussions with the First Minister and Ministry of Justice colleagues on matters affecting Wales, including prison and probation services. I intend to continue this.

The restructuring will bring the National Offender Management Service and the Prison Service together so as to improve the focus on front-line delivery and improve efficiency.
