To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many staff there were without security clearance in bail and probation hostels by site in England and Wales in each of the last 12 months.

Answer (Rory Stewart)

This data is not held centrally and can only be collated at disproportionate cost. Where staff are working in approved premises if they hold no vetting they will be supervised at all times by permanent, vetted NPS staff. A new way of working in approved premises is being implemented, which will lead to there always being two personnel on duty during the night rather than one. During the transition to a new way of working, NPS have agreed an additional precautionary measure which will, in some instances, provide triple cover during the two month transition period.
