Crown censure of HM prison service

HSE called HM Prison Service to its Nottingham office on 12 June 2009 to answer a Crown censure, arising from a case of Legionella at Nottingham Prison in 2006.

Whilst criminal proceedings cannot be taken against the Crown, administrative procedures, known as Crown censures, are used in circumstances where it is HSE’s opinion that, but for Crown immunity, there would have been sufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction in the courts.
