(6) Are male guards ever scheduled to work in female dominated areas of the prison; if so, how many days per week, on average, are male guards scheduled to work in female dominated areas of the prison.

(7) Are female guards ever scheduled to work in male inmate dominated areas of the prison; if so, how many days per week, on average, are female guards scheduled to work in male inmate dominated areas of the prison.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

I have been advised by the Justice and Community Safety Directorate that the information sought is not in an easily retrievable form, and that to collect relevant information to assemble responses would require a considerable diversion of resources.

In this instance, it is inappropriate to divert resources from other priority activities for the purposes of answering the Member’s questions. I do however offer the member a verbal briefing with relevant officials to discuss the questions asked.
