HC Deb 04 December 1967 vol 755 c235W
Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what figures are available on the degree of recidivism in respect of youths having served periods of detention.

Mr. Taverne

I would refer my hon. Friend to page 49 of the Report on the work of the Prison Department 1965 Statistical Tables (Cmnd. 3304). This gives figures of reconvictions of persons discharged from detention centres in England and Wales in the years 1959 to 1964. Figures for 1965 will be published later this month.
