Dear HM Prison Service,

Please may I request the following:

Under the assumption that Terrorists are within Category A prisons:

Are terror related offenders segregated from the rest of prison population, e.g. within a designated wing of the prison?

If they are separated from the rest of the population, are they able to associate with other terror related offenders?

If they are not segregated, are they able to be amongst 'general population'?

I appreciate your time and look forward to your response,

Yours faithfully,

Millie Whittaker

Dear Millie,

Thank you for your e-mail, I am writing to advise you that your enquiry does not fall under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) regime and has been rejected by the Disclosure Team.

It may be helpful if I explain that the FOIA gives individuals and organisations the right of access to all types of recorded information held, at the time the request is received, by public authorities such as the Ministry of Justice (MoJ). Section 84 of the FOIA states that in order for a request for information to be handled as a FOI request, it must be for recorded information.

For example, a FOI request would be for a copy of a policy, rather than an explanation as to why we have that policy in place. On occasion, the MoJ receives requests that do not ask for recorded information, but ask more general questions about, for example, a policy, opinion or a decision.

You may wish to re-submit your enquiry to the Ministry of Justice, which will be treated as Official Correspondence. Our contact details are as follows:

102 Petty France
London
SW1H 9AJ

Contact Form:

If you do have any questions relating specifically to the FOIA or Data Protection Act (DPA), please contact the Disclosure Team at the following e-mail address: [HM Prison Service request email]

Kind regards,

The Disclosure Team
