HMI Prisons: Statutory consultation on the draft inspection programme 2019-2020 and concomitant inspection framework

Under the Police and Justice Act 2006, the criminal justice inspectorates are required to consult with identified stakeholders, including relevant Ministers, on their joint inspection programme, their draft individual programmes and respective inspection frameworks. In the case of HMI Prisons, we consult both the Justice Secretary (prisons, young offender institutions and court custody) and the Home Secretary (immigration detention and police custody), as well as other interested parties.

This consultation invites comments or views on:

  • the structure and scale of our proposed inspection programme in 2019–2020;
  • the topics and focus of our proposed thematic inspection programme in 2019-2020;
  • our inspection framework, which sets out the statutory basis for our inspection programme and the inspection approach we take.
