Question for Ministry of Justice

UIN HL4391, tabled on 9 December 2015

The deployment of staff between prisons on detached duty is a regular and normal part of prison resourcing. It allows staff to be allocated from prisons with the capacity to provide them, to those where additional staffing is required.

The total amount spent on staff on detached duties above basic salaries could only be provided at disproportionate cost.
