Prison Governors’ Association

Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what discussions he has had with the Prison Governors’ Association on the introduction of prison councils. (204286)

The policy on prisoners’ councils is set out in PSO 4480, a copy of which I have placed in the Libraries of the House. The Prison Governors’ Association have not discussed, or requested to discuss, this issue with either the Secretary of State or Prisons Ministers. National Offender Management Service officials maintain an ongoing dialogue with PGA representatives, and are willing to discuss with the PGA any views or concerns it may have.
