Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many injuries sustained by offenders held in (a) secure training centres, (b) secure children's homes and (c) young offender institutions resulted in the offender receiving hospital treatment in each year since 2000, broken down by establishment; and if he will make a statement. (204314)

The following table shows the requested information for the period 1 April 2007 to 29 February 2008. It shows the number of injuries resulting in hospitalisation as a result of assault, restraint or self-harm in secure training centres, young offender institutions and secure children's homes.
