|4 Feb 2019, 3:55 p.m.||Prisoners: Sexual Offences||David Hanson|
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what steps his Department is taking to ensure that all prisons that house sexual offenders have a strategy developed for managing those offenders.
Answer (Rory Stewart)
I note that the question is related to one of the findings in the recently published thematic inspection by HM Inspectorate of Probation and HM Inspectorate of Prisons on the management and supervision of men convicted of sexual offences. We take this report, and our responsibilities to protect the public, incredibly seriously. With this in mind we will publish a full action plan setting out a comprehensive response to the Inspectorates’ recommendations and conclusions, including how we will respond to this and the other recommendations made in the report, shortly.
