HM Prison Service's Race Equality Action Plan

Volume 472: debated on Thursday 21 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice if he will place a copy of HM Prison Service’s Race Equality Action Plan in the Library; what steps have been taken to implement it; and what has been the cost of (a) producing and (b) implementing the plan. (186256)

The HM Prison Service Race Equality Action Plan (REAP) is updated approximately monthly, the most recent of which has been placed in the Library.

The REAP is a detailed and comprehensive plan that sets out all the high-level actions that the public sector Prison Service is taking on race equality. Its production involved contributions from a range of individuals and groups across the Prison Service, and its implementation involves actions by a range of headquarters policy groups and in prison establishments. It is therefore not possible to give an estimate of the cost of producing or implementing the plan.
