To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many hours on average a young offender in prison spent playing competitive sport in each of the last five years.
26 April 2016
National Offender Management Service (NOMS) does not require establishments to report the average time young offenders (18-20 year olds) spend playing competitive sport. Figures for the average hours of PE for 18-20 year olds in Young Offender Institutions for the years 2010/11 and 2011/12 are provided in the table below. These have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.
