Offenders: Rehabilitation

Volume 489: debated on Friday 20 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much was spent by HM Inspectorate of Probation assessing diversity issues during the delivery of restrictive interventions to offenders in (a) 2006, (b) 2007, (c) 2008 and (d) 2009. (264581)

Precise figures are not discernible. A major element of HM Inspectorate of Probation's inspections is an assessment of the effectiveness of the management of offenders' Risk of Harm to the public, including the delivery of restrictive interventions, in a representative sample of individual cases. While the Inspectorate's assessment of the effectiveness of the delivery of restrictive interventions takes into account any diversity issues, the latter forms only a small—though important—part of that assessment.
