Prisons

Sadiq Khan: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice how many prisons operated on half regime during (a) January, (b) February, (c) March, (d) April and (e) May 2014. [200712]

Jeremy Wright: The information regarding how many prisons operated on half regime during (a) January, (b) February, (c) March, (d) April and (e) May 2014, is not collated centrally. The term 'half regime' is not used in prison establishments, and is unlikely to be interpreted consistently. The processes required to collect this data would incur disproportionate costs.
