Clarification on Payment Plus and Travel & Subsistence arrangements

Following concerns from members and the recent audit by NOMS, it is clear that further clarification was required on the above.

Please find attached correspondence from Steve Wagstaffe, Director of Public Sector Prisons, which sets out the policy.

It appears that some local policies may not be in line with national policies and as such these must be reviewed.

I would be grateful if local committees could raise this matter with their Governor to ensure compliance with national policies and avoid any future claims for overpayment.

Thanking you in anticipation of your support and co-operation.

Yours sincerely


Steve Gillan
General Secretary
