To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what the criteria are for determining whether an inmate at HM Young Offender Institution Feltham should be placed within the Ibis Unit; when these criteria were last reviewed; and if he will make a statement. (190628)

HMPYOI Feltham follows the national policy set out in Prison Service Order 1700 (Segregation) when determining whether an offender should be located on Ibis Unit. A full review of PSO 1700 is currently in its latter stages. The last review was completed in November 2003. Adjudications (including decisions on whether to segregate as a punishment) are conducted in accordance with the requirements of PSO 2000 (The Prison Discipline Manual).
