To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many and what proportion of women subject to post-release supervision by Community Rehabilitation Companies (CRC) were recalled to prison for non-compliance by CRC area in England and Wales in (a) 2015, (b) 2016 and (c) 2017.
Answer (Rory Stewart)
The number of females recalled per year by each Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) is set out in the table below.
* Recalls in 2017 up to 30 September 2017.
The figures in this table have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.
The numbers of women subject to post-release supervision are not recorded so it is not possible to show the proportion of women subject to post-release supervision who have been recalled.
Our probation reforms mean we are now monitoring 40,000 offenders who would previously have been released with no supervision at all. HMPPS, the NPS and CRCs are working to ensure that recalls are used appropriately and effectively.
