(Question No 530)

Mrs Jones asked the Minister for Corrections, upon notice, on 25 August 2017:

(1) In relation to the answer to question on notice E17-442, how many women commenced employment in the bakery this month.

(2) Is the Industries Building recycling bay fully operational.

(3) How many inmates are currently employed and for how many hours per week.

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

(1) No detainees commenced employment in the bakery this month. The baker commenced employment on 31 August 2017 and it is anticipated the bakery will be operational in October 2017 once final testing is complete. The detainees who will be employed in the bakery are undergoing risk assessments, being assessed for fit for work certificates and completing their white card qualification.

(2) The Industries Building recycling bay is fully operational. An extra five male detainees are employed in the Industries Building recycling bay.

(3) 190 detainees are employed. All roles attract remuneration for a 30, 36, or 42 hour week at either a level one, two or three. These figures are derived from the detainee payroll dated 28 August 2017.

Level one roles are basic roles such as cleaning cell blocks. Level two roles attract additional responsibilities or require certain skills to complete. Level three roles require the highest level of skill or responsibility.

The below table breaks down the number of detainees employed, the level at which they are employed and the hours for which they are employed.
