To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what estimate he has made of the number of incidents where Minimising and Managing Physical Restraint techniques were deployed in response to (a) prisoner on staff, (b) prisoner on prisoner and (c) multi-perpetrator fights at HM Feltham Young Offenders Institution since 2010.
Answer (Dr Phillip Lee)
The safety and welfare of young people held in custody is one of the highest priorities for the Youth Custody Service (YCS). The YCS has rolled out the Minimising and Managing Physical Restraint (MMPR) technique for staff to use on young people in all Young Offender Institutes and Secure Training Centres – including Her Majesty’s Young Offender Institute (HMYOI) Feltham. MMPR has been specifically designed to reduce the use of physical restraint on young people by focusing on de-escalation techniques. It is only to be used as a last resort when there are no other suitable interventions available.
See the data below relating to the use if the (MMPR) technique for HMYOI Feltham.
