Education: Bullingdon Prison

Volume 472: debated on Tuesday 4 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills what the budget is for HM Prison Bullingdon in the 2007-08 financial year for English language teaching; and what the budget was in 2006-07. (190687)

There was no specific budget allocated for English language teaching at HM Prison Bullingdon in either the 2006-07 or 2007-08 financial year. The resources for learning and skills provision in individual prisons are not allocated on the basis of particular courses or learning interventions. An overall budget is set, from which provision will be delivered on the basis of the assessed needs of individual learners.
