Prisons: Discipline

Sadiq Khan: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many incidents of each type were recorded on the Incident Reporting System in (a) privately and (b) publicly run prisons in each month since 1 January 2014. [199515]

Jeremy Wright: The Incident Reporting System is used by establishments to record events that undermine the safety of those within an establishment and/or subvert the authority or effectiveness of the establishment's regimes or facilities.

There is a range of incident types recorded on this system and the data needs to undergo validation and assurance before being published. To undertake this on each incident type that is reported takes time and so I will write to you when this information is available for the latest period.
