  • Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Staffing 25 Apr 2017

    What assessment she has made of the effect of increasing the number of prison staff on the (a) safety of prison officers and (b) capacity of prison staff to spend more time directly engaging with and supervising prisoners.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Staffing 25 Apr 2017

    I thank my right hon. Friend for the extremely kind and generous comments at the beginning of her answer. I welcome the fact that, following the recognition that more staff are needed at Chelmsford prison, new staff are now being trained up. Does she know when those staff are likely to come on stream, to ensure that we have the proper staffing levels and the proper protection for prison officers?
