To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many recorded crimes were committed by people residing in bail and probation hostels by site in England and Wales in each of the last 12 months.
Answer (Rory Stewart)
At the time of conviction, offenders who commit a further offence while resident at Approved Premises (AP) may have left the AP, which will therefore have no record of the conviction. To obtain the requested information, it would therefore be necessary to cross-check thousands of AP and court records, which could not be done without incurring disproportionate cost.
