National Offender Management Service: Ethnic Groups

Volume 493: debated on Monday 8 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how much time the National Offender Management Service spent recording ethnic monitoring data in (a) 2006, (b) 2007, (c) 2008 and (d) 2009. (277805)

The information requested is not collected centrally. An accurate calculation of time spent recording and collating ethnic monitoring data would involve calculations across a number of processes and functions in prisons, young offender institutions and probations areas locally and at a regional and national level. Gathering this information would be at disproportionate cost.
