Dear Department of Corrections,

I am seeking updated information from that provided in response to my December 2018 request. For the 2019/20 financial year can you please tell me:

* the total number of hours of activity undertaken at each payment level, broken down by the type of activity (e.g. how many hours at each payment level for employment, education, and rehabilitation respectively)
* the total number of hours paid at the unemployment rate
* the total money paid to prisoners under the framework
* the revenue earned by the Department from prisoner employment and other activities undertaken under the framework.

If you are unable to provide this for the entire financial year I am happy to accept results for four random weeks.
Yours faithfully,

BAW Russell
