Young Offender Institutions: Outdoor Exercise

Volume 691: debated on Friday 20 April 2007

asked Her Majesty’s Government:

How much time juveniles spend in outdoor exercise each day in Werrington young offender institution. [HL1767]

Scheduled access to the fresh air at Werrington is reflected in the published core day during movement to and from the trainees’ activity, which occurs four times per day and provides a period of 15 minutes each time. More specific data are not kept by Werrington on how much outdoor exercise each young person receives daily. However, there is a gym and an extensive sports field that are used by the trainees mainly at weekends and on a seasonal basis.
