To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many convicted sex offenders have (a) started and (b) completed the Sex Offender Treatment Programme; and of those offenders how many are (i) in prison, (ii) released and (iii) in a bail hostel.
Answer (Mr Sam Gyimah)
Information on the numbers of convicted sex offenders who have (a) started and (b) completed the Sex Offender Treatment Programmes is published annually. The data until 2015/16 is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/547224/supplementary-tables.zip. Data for the period 2016 / 17 due to be published on 27July 2017.
Information on the current locations of former participants in the Core Sex Offender Treatment Programme is held on individual offender files. The information requested could therefore be provided only at disproportionate cost.
