Prisoners: Uniforms

Volume 475: debated on Thursday 15 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what guidance is in place on the wearing of uniforms by prisoners; and if he will make a statement. (205812)

Prison rules allow unconvicted prisoners and civil prisoners to wear their own clothes. Other prisoners are required to wear clothing provided for them; however PSO 4000 provides guidance on the wearing of own clothes which is one of the key earnable privileges in the incentives and earned privilege scheme.
