To ask the Minister of Justice for a copy of the Northern Ireland Prison Service policy on managing serious self-harm and deaths in custody.
The Northern Ireland Prison Service does not currently have a separate managing serious self harm and deaths in custody policy. These issues are reflected in the current Suicide and Self Harm Prevention policy, which is available on www.dojni.gov.uk/index/ni-prison-service/nips-publications/policy_reports.
A copy of the Prison Service’s Suicide and Self Harm Prevention Policy has also been placed in the Assembly library.
