PSI 2011-07 consultation further detail

Zoe O'Connell made this Freedom of Information request to HM Prison Service

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear HM Prison Service,

In response to a written question from Caroline Lucas MP, it has been stated (15th March 2011, Column 189W, http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa...) that external stakeholders to consult were selected as they either "asked to be part of the consultation" or "on the basis of potential interest in the Instruction." Please can you:

a) Explicitly list which stakeholders were consulted because they asked to be consulted and which were included because of "potential interest".

b) State exactly which unions were consulted and in what capacity (E.g. as representatives or prison workers or because of possible experience with trans issues) and if one particular group within that union was consulted or responded, (E.g. LGBT interest groups) which ones.

c) Provide information on where and how the consultation was advertised.

d) Provide details about the nature and dates of the consultations. (E.g. face-to-face meetings, telephone conversations or written/email correspondence)

e) Provide copies of any consultation documents sent to stakeholders and written/emailed responses to the consultation, with a preference for documents to/from external stakeholders where this request would otherwise exceed the time allowable.

Where any individual question would exceed the time allowable for responding to the request, please disregard that question and respond to the other questions, giving preference to earlier questions.

Yours faithfully,

Zoe O'Connell

Dear HM Prison Service,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of HM Prison Service's handling of my FOI request 'PSI 2011-07 consultation further detail'.

Item b requested information on "which unions were consulted and in what capacity ... and if one particular group within that union was consulted or responded, ... which ones." The response only provided a list of unions and none of the further information. No reason was supplied for not providing the remainder of the information.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address:

Yours faithfully,
