Wymott Prison

Volume 490: debated on Monday 30 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice for how long the absent governor of HM Prison Wymott has been on sick leave; how long the prison has been operating on a two governor basis; and how long he expects this arrangement to continue. (267588)

It is not service policy to comment on individual members of staff.

The previous Governor stepped down from the post in December 2008 and was replaced shortly thereafter by the present incumbent. The establishment has at no time operated on a ‘two Governor basis’.

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice whether the three latest roof-top protest incidents at HM Prison Wymott (a) involved the same prisoners and (b) took place in the same part of the prison. (267589)

The seven prisoners involved in the three incidents were seven different individuals. The incidents all took place in the same part of the prison and new measures are in place to further restrict access to this roof.
