We manage all of our privately managed prison contracts with G4S, or G4S subsidiaries, robustly and deal with any performance issues in accordance with the mechanisms of the contracts. Privately managed prison providers achieve the majority of their contractual targets; however, we will not hesitate to take action where standards fall short.
For privately managed prisons the total value of financial remedies imposed for each financial year has been provided and is included in the below table:
