HC Deb 23 February 1973 vol 851 cc231-2W
Mr. Mayhew

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many sex offenders are received into prison annually; what proportion of such prisoners receive treatment; and in respect of those who do, for what proportion of their average week they undergo such treatment.

Mr. Carlisle

In 1971, the latest complete year for which figures are available, 1,112 people sentenced for sexual offences were received into prison. The information requested in the second and third parts of the Question is not readily available and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
