Prison Service: Pay

Volume 493: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what percentage of each (a) prison and (b) young offender institution's budget was spent on management staff salaries in the last 12 months. (277297)

National Offender Management Unit finance systems provide analysis between unified and clerical staff but do not allow specific analysis of management salaries without a disproportionate amount of manual analysis. Each prison would need to be contacted individually and asked to undertake a manual analysis of their payroll. It is estimated that this would be a day's work at each prison.
