What steps he is taking to improve the quality of civil service apprenticeships.

The Civil Service will be launching a new Apprenticeships Strategy in the new financial year. The first phase will have delivered 30,000 apprenticeships by April. In this strategy we will focus not just on numbers but on the quality of training on offer to ensure that departments are better equipped to nurture talent in house and in plugging skills gaps

To this end, we recently published the "Curriculum and Campus for Government Skills", with the goal of setting the highest standard in vocational training for all Civil Servants, including apprentices.

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many women were known to be pregnant while on remand or serving a sentence in HMP Foston Hall in each quarter from 31 March 2015 to 30 September 2020 (a) in total and (b) by ethnicity.

HMPPS does not collect or hold centrally, quality assured data in the form requested.

However, as part of our fundamental review of policy relating to pregnancy, Mother and Baby Units and women experiencing separation from children up to two in prison, we have committed to providing national pregnancy data in the future. We expect to complete this review this summer. Further information on the review, including our findings and resulting reforms regarding data collection, can be found in our summary report published in July 2020: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/905559/summary-report-of-review-of-policy-on-mbu.pdf
