§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many persons are detained in penal establishments in Scotland who were sentenced by courts outside the United Kingdom, broken down by country or territory of origin and by length of sentence; and what are the corresponding figures for each of the last five years.
§ Mr. Rifkind
Two persons sentenced by courts outside the United Kingdom are at present detained in Scottish penal establishments. Both were sentenced in Jersey. One is serving borstal training and the other a prison sentence of 18 months. Four other prisoners at present in Scottish prisons were sentenced by courts-martial held in West Germany. Corresponding figures for each of the last five years could not be provided without disproportionate cost.
