To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what estimate he has made of the number of deferred sentences for women broken down by police force areas in each year since 2010.
Answer (Rory Stewart)
The number of female offenders who received a deferred sentence broken down by police force area, from 2010 to 2017, can be viewed in the table attached.
We remain committed to addressing the issues around female offending so we can better protect the public and deliver more effective rehabilitation. That is why we plan to set out a strategy to improve outcomes for women in both the community and custody as soon as we are able.
