Question

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment his Department has made of the effect on rehabilitation services of reducing the number of community rehabilitation companies providing such services.

Answer (Rory Stewart)

Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) contracts are currently due to end in 2022.

We have been clear that CRCs need to improve, and are in commercial discussions with providers to ensure that we secure the quality of probation services we need. Contracts allow for a range of action to be taken.

No decisions have yet been made about the future delivery of probation services once current CRC contracts end: we will update Parliament as necessary.
