National Bullying Helpline

Volume 506: debated on Friday 5 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what contact the Prison Service has had with the National Bullying Helpline since 2004; and whether the Prison Service has made any payments to (a) the National Bullying Helpline and (b) HR and Diversity Management Limited in that period. (320135)

The Prison Service has national policies designed to keep prisoners, staff and visitors safe from bullying. These policies do not promote the National Bullying Helpline. Whether prisons locally or offices have ever had any contact with the National Bullying Helpline since 2004 could be known only by contacting each prison and office and asking them to check available information. This would incur disproportionate cost. According to information held centrally, no payments have been made to either the National Bullying Helpline or to HR and Diversity Management Limited.
