Question to Prison's Minister

Following the close of Annual Conference 2013, members have requested the response from the Prison’s Minister to the questions raised by delegates at that Annual Conference.

The National Chairman wrote to the Minister reminding him that we were still awaiting replies, following a number of requests from Branch Officials. The Ministers Office confirmed that the response had been sent to the POA via NOMS, but upon contacting NOMS on the 8th October 2013 they sent us a copy by email but the questions were incomplete. This was pointed out to NOMS and it is only in the last few days that we have received the answers.

The delay is regrettable but outwith the control of the National Executive Committee.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
