§ 7. Sir J. Langford-Holt
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what percentage of boys who have undergone borstal training return for a further period of such training; and what percentage of boys who receive 342W borstal training are subsequently convicted on criminal charges.
§ Mr. Lane
The latest available figures for England and Wales are 21 per cent. in answer to the first part of the Question and 65 per cent. in answer to the second part. These are based on a two-year follow-up of those released on licence in 1968 in relation to convictions for "standard list" offences.
