I would first of all like to offer my thanks to the Prison Service Pay Review Body (PSPRB) for their hard
work, insight and rigour through which they developed their report for prison service pay for the past year.

See the response of the Lord Chancellor to the PSPRB Chair 2020 below

See the letter from PSPRB Chair in relation to the Pay Review:

The role of the Prison Service Pay Review Body is to provide independent advice on the remuneration of governing governors and operational managers, prison officers and support grades in the England and Wales Prison Service.

Please find attached for your information an open letter sent to the Chair of the Pay Review Body regarding Pay.
