asked Her Majesty's Government:Why a letter addressed to Mr. Enahoro Esemuze, an inmate at Her Majesty's Prison, Bullingdon, was returned marked "Deported" when he was actually in Her Majesty's Prison, Rochester. [HL2597]

I refer the noble Lord to the Answer I gave to Lord Avebury on Monday 6 July (WA 124) for the facts relating to Mr. Esemuze's custody.Regrettably, Bullingdon prison failed to track Mr. Esemuze's whereabouts via the Local Inmate Database System and also erred in interpreting the available information, resulting in the letter being incorrectly returned.This matter has been brought to the attention of Bullingdon prison and the Prison Service area manager will be issuing further guidance to the staff on the action to be taken with letters received at the prison for a prisoner who has left their custody.
