It is right that prison repair work is carried out in a timely and effective manner to ensure public protection. We always work to ensure we achieve value for money for the taxpayer and keep our costs under review.
The most recent applicable data available for the period requested is from 2012, when Mitie Care and Custody Ltd took over the provision of facilities management (FM) at HMP Brixton, later expanding to cover three sites. Until June 2015, FM services at the rest of the public-sector prison estate was delivered in-house by Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS). Since then, it has been delivered by Amey Community Ltd and Carillion Plc.
